At UC Merced, research is part of our DNA. Students are introduced to concepts early on and often have the opportunity to work in labs even as freshmen.

Our professors are invested in the student experience, personally teaching basic and advanced courses.

We have teams of researchers exploring the depths of the human mind, from how we learn to why we communicate in a certain manner. Join us as we work to complete the puzzle.

Not everyone needs a break during the summer. It’s the perfect time to tackle any class that could benefit from undivided attention or to easily knock out a couple of elective courses.

Whether you’re an athlete or a fan, UC Merced athletics offers an instant sense of community by connecting you with others who share your interests.
