The School of Graduate Studies and Research (SGSR) is one of the twelve major academic units of the University. The school has the principal responsibility of working in collaboration with the various schools, colleges and institutes to maintain, develop, coordinate, and monitor the policies and procedures that govern all graduate programs.
The Division of Graduate Studies was established in 1957 and was elevated to the School of Graduate Studies, Research and Continuing Education in 1987. Currently known as the School of Graduate Studies and Research, high priority is given to the development of sponsored research and the research interests of individual faculty members. Service provided to aid the development of research and other grant proposals includes technical assistance, dissemination of requests for proposals, and editorial consultation. In certain instances, grant proposals are developed and written by the School. Contact is maintained with private corporations and foundations, as well as local, state, and national governmental agencies in pursuit of support for its research programs.
Graduate study is available in nine schools and colleges. Collectively, these entities offer 12 doctoral degrees and 29 master’s degree programs, one professional doctorate, (the Doctor of Physical Therapy), and 12 doctoral degrees. The 12 doctoral degree programs include 11 Ph.D. degrees and one Doctor of Public Health (DrPH). The Ph.D. degrees consist of: six in the College of Engineering, one in the College of Pharmacy, one in the College of Science and Technology, one in the College of Education, one in the School of the Environment, and one cooperative Ph.D. is offered in the College of Agricultural and Food Sciences, with the University of Florida, in Entomology.
The 11 Ph.D. programs are: Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Physics, Educational Leadership, Environmental Science, and Entomology.
The deadline for submitting your completed graduate admissions application for the 2015 spring semester is November 1, 2014. (NOTE: GRE scores, final transcripts, and all other program requirements must be submitted by the deadline. This requirement overrides GRE departmental requriements)
