We’re serious about fun, but we’re really serious about academics. UC Davis Pre-College Programs are an active, hands-on opportunity to explore a major at one of the world’s top universities.
Each of the programs we offer is built on a subject where UC Davis has built an international reputation, such as veterinary medicine, marine science, entrepreneurship and neurology. If you’re considering majoring in these subjects, there is—literally—no better place on the planet to spend your summer.
