The Office of Graduate Studies (OGS), Arts & Sciences, administers master's and PhD degrees for departments within the School of Arts & Sciences. Graduate students in Arts & Sciences programs are supported administratively by the OGS.


The OGS, Arts & Sciences, is led by the Vice Dean of Graduate Education and the OGS team. The Vice Dean also works closely with an Advisory Council, which consists of nominated and elected faculty from across Arts & Sciences as well as student representatives from Arts & Sciences graduate programs. The Advisory Council advises the Vice Dean and the OGS team on policies, the implementation of strategic initiatives, and emerging issues and opportunities related to graduate education in Arts & Sciences. The Council provides initial reviews of curricular proposals and meets with all Arts & Sciences directors of graduate study and student representatives each semester.
