The Graduate School Giving Initiatives

The University of Cincinnati has been a pioneer in graduate education. Prior to the formal establishment of the Graduate Schoolin 1901, the university granted 83 advanced degrees. More than a century later, approximately 59,000 (25%) of the university’s 238,000 living alumni have earned advanced degrees from UC.In order to be competitive in this complex, ever-evolving, global society, individuals must advance their skill set by obtaining a graduate education.

  • In 2009, the Graduate School awarded more than 2,400 advanced degrees, with 416 being at the doctorate level.
  • Out of our 35 graduate programs that are ranked nationally for public universities, 31 place in the Top 50.

The Graduate School continues to re-invent itself to promote and deliver excellence in scholarship, research, and service.
