Following the campus guidelines for Coronavirus all UC Davis classes, lectures, seminars, labs and discussion sections will move to virtual instruction and remain virtual through the end of Summer Session 2021, including final exams. Given this, the department’s administrative functions have moved to remote work conditions. To contact staff members of the department via e-mail or phone, please go to our administrative staff contact page.  We anticipate a return to campus for Fall 2021.

Strong incoming Ph.D. class for Fall 2011

We have 19 new students who have confirmed they will commence Ph.D. studies in Fall 2011. Among the students, 9 are domestic and 10 international (one each from China, Czech Republic, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, and 5 from Korea); 7 are women and 12 are men.  The students come from a variety of excellent universities, including Pomona, Middlebury, Bocconi, Toulouse, Peking U and Seoul National. Several have research assistant experience at research institutions including the  Brookings Institution and the Urban Institute.  For the first time one of our incoming students was awarded a Eugene Cota-Robles Fellowship on the basis of a university-wide competition; nine such fellowships are awarded by UCD each year and cover fees and living expenses for two years.
