UCLA’s graduate programs have a reputation for producing professionals, researchers and leaders who have a major impact on the world. With 40 programs ranked among the best in the nation, UCLA gives today’s graduate students the resources and cutting-edge instruction they need to go out and leave their own indelible mark.
And with the second largest city in the U.S. in our backyard, learning extends beyond the classroom. Engaging with the community, while being part of an academic system that is well connected and respected throughout the world, creates an educational experience that cannot be replicated anywhere else.
FOR EVERY ASPIRATION,
UCLA HAS A MEANS.
With more than 3,900 courses in 109 academic departments, UCLA offers 125+ majors to help you define your academic path. And 70 percent of our undergraduate classes have 30 or fewer students, maximizing your personal engagement with our internationally renowned faculty.
Our faculty includes Nobel Prize winners, Fulbright Scholars and a Fields Medal recipient. Classes are stimulating. Coursework is challenging.
Our academic requirements are among the most rigorous in the nation. But once our students arrive, they have the full force of our resources behind them. There are countless opportunities for research, fellowships and internships and for connecting with major players in almost any field. Whether you want to change a life, a generation or the whole world, imagine what you can do with the resources only UCLA can provide.
From the very first moment students step onto campus, they feel a palpable sense of momentum.
A can-do spirit emanates from every class and student, and undergraduate students are integral to this momentum. Combine that with the resources and opportunities you would expect from one of the highest ranked schools in the nation, and it’s not a question of if our students will make a difference — it’s a question of when.
The College of Letters and Science is the overarching umbrella that encompasses the social sciences, the humanities, the physical and life sciences, and undergraduate education. It’s the crossroads of perspectives, where students analyze and question. It’s where they learn to think and write, both critically and creatively, about the literatures, social issues and languages of other cultures and where they’re encouraged to teach us everything they can about their own.
The Social Sciences Division guides students toward socially, culturally and environmentally relevant thinking and action. From African American studies and political science to anthropology and communication studies, the social sciences explore how the world works. And as an institution at the forefront of progress, UCLA endows its students with the ability not only to prepare for changes in the world but to bring change about.
