Graduate Study

The philosophy

Graduate students at the College of Humanities and Social Sciences push academic boundaries and energize their peers. The college offers 9 master’s degrees and 2 doctoral degrees. Programs are small by design in order to provide students with greater access to faculty advisors and university resources. Students frequently author articles for peer-reviewed journals and present their work at national conferences while completing their studies.  

Our graduate students are one of the college’s most valuable assets. They collaborate with faculty and undergraduates, often serving as a bridge between the two as teaching assistants and field researchers. To attract and retain top graduate students the college offers several fellowships to help fund their studies.  

Our alumni include faculty members in colleges around the nation, social workers, attorneys, analysts for the CIA, archeologists, nonprofit managers, entrepreneurs, legislators, journalists, and teachers.
