Graduate School Support & Resources
Graduate education Graduate education involves a more narrowly focused program of study than undergraduate work. There are a wide variety of programs. You may earn a degree that is either academic or professional.
Academic degrees (e.g., M.A., M.S., Ph.D.) involve acquiring and communicating new knowledge through original research, and are awarded in almost all disciplines (e.g. arts and humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences).
Professional degrees emphasize the practical application of knowledge and skills and may be earned in areas such as: medicine (M.D. or D.O.), law (J.D.), business (M.B.A.), and education (M.Ed.). Other degrees in specialized fields include: fine arts (M.F.A.), library science (M.L.S.) and social work (M.S.W.).
