The Agricultural and Environmental Chemistry graduate group is the oldest interdepartmental graduate group at UC Davis and is renowned for its multidisciplinary approach to research in applied chemistry. In addition to the many research opportunities available, students in the group can also take advantage of an enormous breadth of classes in basic and applied chemistry and in related areas.
The Group consists of nearly 50 Ph.D. and M.S. students and more than 55 faculty. Graduate Students in the program design an academic program that suits their needs and interests. Coursework options are divided into four areas of specialization: analytical chemistry, environmental chemistry, biological & toxicological chemistry, and food, fiber & polymer chemistry.
