University of California, Santa Cruz

From building more efficient solar cells to researching personalized cancer treatments, UC Santa Cruz's focus is on improving our planet and the lives of all its inhabitants.

Perhaps that's why we were recently ranked second in the world for research influence by Times Higher Education. Within our extraordinary educational community, students participate in interdisciplinary programs that create new knowledge, new technologies, and new ways of expressing and understanding cultures.

UC Santa Cruz is well known for its rigorous but supportive academic environment, its distinctive residential colleges, and its award-winning sustainability programs. Many of its academic programs are in newer fields that focus on interdisciplinary thinking, and undergraduates across the disciplines conduct and publish research and scholarly work, working closely with faculty on innovative projects.

The campus is located in a spectacular setting between the Pacific Ocean and redwood forests, near Silicon Valley and the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Campus Explorer has rated UC Santa Cruz the number one college in the U.S. for "outdoorsy people," and Forbes ranked it among the 23 most beautiful college campuses in the world. The San Francisco Bay Area — San Francisco, San Jose, Berkeley, and Oakland — is within one to two hours' drive.
