About Us: Overview
Welcome to the Princeton University Graduate School website. Princeton University offers advanced degrees spanning the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and engineering. Doctoral education available in all disciplines emphasizes original and independent scholarship, while master's degree programs in architecture, engineering, finance, public affairs and public policy prepare candidates for careers in public life and professional practice. These programs share a number of distinctive and desirable features: a high level of engagement between distinguished faculty and outstanding students, a campus environment that fosters a community of scholars, a depth of financial support that allows concentration on academics, and degree programs with demonstrated success in educating graduates for careers in academia, government, and the non-profit and corporate sectors. Complementing and enriching these degree-granting programs are a wide range of interdisciplinary units that promote intellectual activities and research across departmental and divisional boundaries.
Current and prospective students, faculty, staff and alumni will find here news of activities, academic opportunities, available resources, and essential policies and procedures. If you don’t find the information you need, please feel free to contact me or any member of the Graduate School staff.
