University of California-Riverside

The University of California, Riverside (UC Riverside or UCR) is one of 10 institutions that comprise the University of California System. Originally established in 1907 as the UC Citrus Experiment Station, Riverside, UC Riverside has transformed California's citrus industry in several ways. The UC Citrus Experiment Station was instrumental in the creation of biological pest control and growth regulators, which more than doubled California's citrus growing season (extending it from 4 to 9 months). UC Riverside is still home to some of the most important research on citrus entomology and diversity in the world.

There are 81 undergraduate majors and 52 minors, 48 master's degree programs, and 42 doctoral programs available at UC Riverside. UC Riverside is one of three UC campuses to offer an undergraduate business administration program, and the only UC campus to offer undergraduate programs in public policy and creative writing. The university as a whole comprises four academic colleges, numerous interdisciplinary divisions, and two professional schools.

U.S. News & World Report ranked UC Riverside the 55th best public university, and the 112th best national university, in the United States. Additionally, UC Riverside is one of the most economically and ethnically diverse institutions in the country.

Through UCR Extension UC students can pursue several online learning options. Currently online programs are available in business, education and credentials, environment, healthcare and marketing communications.
