Although graduate study involves a quantitative extension of knowledge, it is not a mere continuation of undergraduate or professional training. Intellectual achievement at the graduate level is different in kind, for the graduate student is expected to deepen and master knowledge by a personal and independent grasp of it in its sources and evidence, in its basic meanings and interrelationships.

In addition to offering the previously noted graduate degrees, the Academic Vice President may periodically approve a new or interdisciplinary graduate degree within an academic specialty. For detailed information on any graduate program, such as curriculum, tuition and admission procedures, students should consult the graduate catalogue and contact the academic area responsible for that specific graduate program.
