Quarter at Aggie Square

Quarter at Aggie Square (QAS) is an immersive academic program in Undergraduate Education that enables undergraduate students to focus on a topic of local societal relevance, working across multiple disciplines, on UC Davis’ urban campus, Aggie Square, in Sacramento. Each quarter, Aggie Square hosts coordinated learning experiences, each of which involves small cohorts of students, from several majors, in a common enterprise to fully explore a specific problem or challenge via classes, research, field trips, speaker series, community engagement, and experiential learning. As a result, students who participated gained more clarity about career and research interests, in-depth knowledge about the topic, as well as deeper connections with peers, faculty, and the local community.
