About the Graduate School
The Graduate School awards all Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy degrees at Washington University in St. Louis, and works closely with the Olin Business School, the James McKelvey School of Engineering, the School of Medicine, the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts, and the Brown School of Social Work supervising graduate students.
We prepare the leaders of tomorrow, enhance the culture of entrepreneurship and innovation, and improve the global quality of life through groundbreaking discoveries by fostering robust collaboration between faculty and students. Our graduate students are provided with substantial financial support, allowing them time to focus on academics and participate in intellectual activities outside of the classroom. The Liberman Graduate Center provides a dedicated space for graduate students and groups to convene, connect and engage. We create intentional communities for our students through interdisciplinary programming with over 150 graduate student groups. Additionally, we offer leadership and professional development opportunities, designed to prepare our graduate students to realize their potential.
