Graduate School

Your next level is here.

The Graduate School at the University of New Orleans (UNO) is a keystone both within the school as a whole and in the New Orleans community. UNO began its graduate division in 1963, granting master's degrees in chemistry and physics. As UNO expanded its available graduate programs and disciplines, it established the Graduate School in 1966 and granted its first doctoral degree in 1967.

Today, the Graduate School regulates graduate policy and standards across all university schools and colleges. As the city's only public Carnegie-ranked research institution and the state's only public research university, UNO distinguishes its graduate programs with cutting-edge curricula, industry-leading faculty members, and an expansive array of career-advancing certificates, master's, and doctoral programs.

For graduate students, UNO's partnerships erase the line between the real world and research institution and create exclusive opportunities for research and professional experiences with organizations like Ochsner Health Systems, GE, the Department of Homeland Security, the Convention Visitors and Tourism Bureau, and many, many others. At UNO, students collaborate with professors who are generating knowledge and shaping the renaissance of our region and have the chance to tap into our alumni network of professional relationships that fuel the local economy's growth and momentum. If you're looking for a university primed to take you to the next level, you've found it.

Tulane University

Since beginning as a medical college in 1834, we've grown into one of the most well-respected research universities in the country. We're one of just 62 members of the Association of American Universities, an elite group of top-ranked research institutions.

But we're hardly an ivory-tower, view-from-40,000-feet kind of place. Yes, you'll find a lot of intellectual firepower on campus. Our faculty are involved in projects as diverse as protecting the aquatic resources of the Gulf and chronicling the region's singular musical heritage. But because of our size – just 8,610 undergrads; classes average 21 students – you won't be looking at that academic talent from afar. The brilliant faculty who are carrying out that work also happen to be eager, nurturing educators, and they'll be teaching your classes from the minute you arrive.

About those classes: There are 1,700 to choose from. We offer more than 70 majors in five different schools, including science and engineering, architecture, business, liberal arts and public health. Can't pick? About a third of the students here double major.

Every single one of our undergraduate students, though, gives back. We were the first research university to require community service in the curriculum. Last year alone, our students logged more than 780,000 hours of civic service in New Orleans. (Service is really at our core: The physicians who formed the college that became Tulane were trying to combat epidemics of yellow fever and cholera that ravaged New Orleans in the 19th century.)

Once you spend some time here, it will become clear how Tulane and New Orleans are connected. Tulanians – that's what we're known as – come from 58 countries and all 50 states. On average, students travel 923 miles to get here from home. In some places, that kind of diversity sticks out. Here, it blends perfectly with our surroundings. New Orleans is a melting pot of cultures, and our art, architecture, food and music show it – we've even got our own language.

Tulane University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award baccalaureate, masters, doctorate, and professional degrees. Questions about the accreditation of Tulane University may be directed in writing to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, GA 30033-4097, by calling (404) 679-4500, or by using information available on SACSCOC's website ( ).

Student Life

Tulane students enjoy a vibrant on-campus life, participating in our many student clubs and organizations. With New Orleans as a backdrop, Tulane students have countless opportunities for on and off campus engagement.

Tulane has more than 200 student-run clubs and organizations on campus, and the university puts special emphasis on outside of the classroom learning experiences that are central to our curriculum. With such a diverse offering of activities to choose from - club sports, Greek life, radio stations, performing arts organizations, student government, community service clubs, just to name a few - Tulane students are never bored.

Students describe the Tulane lifestyle in New Orleans as both active and comfortable; becoming a part of Tulane's campus community comes naturally, and it is never long before students start calling New Orleans home.

Tuition & Aid

Tulane offers both merit- and need-based aid programs. All admitted students are considered for merit-based scholarships, and the review process is need-blind. Several need-based aid awards and programs are also available through our Office of Financial Aid.
