GAC in Plant Breeding

Graduate Academic Certificate Program

The Plant Breeding Center is currently developing a Graduate Academic Certificate (GAC) in Plant Breeding at UC Davis. GACs are open to current students enrolled in a graduate degree program. A GAC is a structured sequence of courses and requirements that focus on a specialty or area of expertise not offered by a regular graduate degree program. GACs are administered by a UC Davis instructional unit (professional school, department, graduate group or a designated emphasis program), and are an additional sequence of training and expertise for graduate students. GACs consist of a minimum of 12 units of graduate level instruction, and are recognized by transcript notation and an official certificate issued by UC Davis with the gold seal of the University of California. A list of GACs can be found here.

The Plant Breeding GAC is currently in the approval process and is not available to graduate students yet. We will send out an email alert and post information on out website and social media when the GAC in Plant Breeding is approved. For questions, contact Amanda Saichaie at
