Admissions

Graduate study in soils and biogeochemistry at the University of California, Davis, is administered by the Graduate Group in Soils & Biogeochemistry under the supervision of Graduate Studies and the Soils and Biogeochemistry Section within the Department of Land, Air and Water Resources (LAWR).

The Graduate Group in Soils & Biogeochemistry is composed of faculty with research interests in soil science and includes members of the departments of Agricultural Engineering, Agronomy and Range Science, Civil Engineering, Land, Air and Water Resources, Nematology, Pomology, Vegetable Crops, and Viticulture and Enology. The size and diversity of interests of the faculty give unusual breadth to the program and allow specialization in environmental quality, general soil science, soil physics, soil chemistry, pedology, soil fertility and plant nutrition, soil microbiology and biochemistry, and soil-plant-water relations. Fundamental properties and processes unique to soils and responses of soils to natural events and human activities are stressed.

Soils & Biogeochemistry Graduate Group at UC Davis values a diversity of viewpoints, backgrounds, and experiences among its students—as this diversity strengthens and enriches our research, scholarship, and teaching. A diverse graduate student population also enhances the academic experiences for all students.  We are committed to achieving diversity and a multicultural academic environment that supports the success of all graduate students.
