Degree-granting Departments & Programs

The University has 34 academic departments that grant both undergraduate and graduate degrees. In addition, students can be admitted into a number of degree-granting master's or Ph.D. programs.

Undergraduate certificate programs enable students to pursue focused study that supplements the primary work of their concentrations (majors), leading to a certificate upon completion. Further academic interests also can be explored through various undergraduate interdisciplinary programs.

Ph.D. candidates may pursue research in a variety of interdisciplinary programs, enhancing their work in a degree-granting department or program in the Graduate School
