Graduate School

Graduate school is an advanced program of study that involves obtaining specialized knowledge in a concentrated or specific field. Graduate degrees are offered on three levels: Masters, Specialist, and Doctorate.

Masters degrees are offered in multiple fields of study, however some universities offer only doctoral programs in particular fields. A masters degree program can take between 1 and 3 years to complete. Some masters degrees are designed to lead to a doctorate degree while others are terminal degrees for a given profession.

Specialist degrees are typically completed in addition to a masters program and provide additional training and experience beyond what is required for the masters degree. This type of degree prepares students for professional certification or licensing.

Doctorate studies typically require the pursuit of original research for an academic program and take anywhere from 5-7 years to complete.
