Introduction to Graduate Education
The College of Arts and Sciences (A&S) is the largest college at UofL. In addition to its outstanding undergraduate programs, the College offers graduate degrees and certificates in a host of disciplines, including masters of arts (MA), masters of science (MS), masters of fine arts (MFA) and doctorates (PhD). To the left, you will find a link to the list of graduate programs offered in the College of Arts and Sciences, along with links to their specific departments.
A graduate education involves research as well as study; the College wants its students to conduct engaged scholarship and to be involved in the community. Graduate students in A&S have been involved in ground-breaking research, including discovering a new planet and discussing the scientific ethos of the tv show “Breaking Bad”. Of course, graduate studies need not mean locking yourself up in the Ivory Tower; graduate students in A&S are involved in their own organization, the Graduate Network (GNAS, link left).
As Associate Dean for Graduate Eduction, my job is to help graduate students complete their degrees, to help departments and programs work with their students, and to promote the research activities of A&S graduate students and faculty.
Feel free to contact my office if you have any questions about graduate education in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Louisville.
