College of Arts & Sciences Graduate Programs

GRADUATE PROGRAMS

Graduate programs are your chance to help build a better word through research projects with world-renowned faculty and to increase your learning potential.

From the private sector to public service, an advanced degree speaks volumes to potential employers. For some students, a master’s or Ph.D. is required in their field; for others, their thirst for knowledge leads to advanced study.

Graduate students in the College of Arts and Sciences develop one-on-one relationships with their faculty mentors and study in small classes. Providing adequate fellowships is a priority.
