Graduate Life

The more-than 2,000 Graduate students at UCR are a crucial part of the university's research efforts and are full partners in the undergraduate teaching mission of the faculty.
Because CMDB is an interdepartmental program, our students are our primary focus.  We want every student to succeed in graduate school and research and move on to a successful career in whichever field fits their personal goals.
Don't forget that you have a team of faculty and staff here to support you and we encourage you to speak with us whenever you need help or information.
