UCLA is one of the world’s premier universities. At the core of the University’s research programs, graduate training, and undergraduate instruction is the UCLA College of Letters and Science. With over 27,600 students and more than 900 faculty members, the College is the largest academic unit in the UC system and the academic heart of UCLA.

The undergraduate programs in the College stress a liberal arts education that brings together perspectives from many fields in a unified approach to learning. Students learn ways that issues are analyzed, questions are posed, and knowledge is organized. After sampling many general subjects, they concentrate on one field or subject and are required to pursue it rigorously and in depth, according to the standards of scholars in the field. When they reach the graduate level, they pose their own questions, analyze academic issues of their own making and, through their research, participate in the creation of knowledge.
