Let's Get Started

The University of Connecticut offers graduate degrees in more than 100 subject areas and we enroll nearly 7000 students in doctoral, masters, and certificate programs. The Graduate School is the focal point for all of this activity. We work with each graduate student who applies for admissions, with advisory committees to facilitate students' progress towards a degree, and most importantly, we celebrate with you and your significant others when you graduate.
