Graduate Students

Graduate students—as contributors to research teams in the College of Arts and Sciences, and through their own scholarship and teaching—are indispensable to the vitality of the UO research and teaching mission.

The College of Arts and Sciences offers more than 20 doctoral programs and more than 30 masters’ programs across the Humanities, Social Sciences and Natural Sciences. In addition, there are two dozen research institutes and centers affiliated with the College.

Approximately 1,300 students are enrolled in College of Arts and Sciences graduate programs; more than 750 of them are funded through teaching assistantships, more than 200 through research assistantships and 50 through administrative appointments, which is over 1,000 supported students.

Every year, the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences hosts a reception to celebrate graduate student accomplishments.
