Graduate Student Graduate

Graduate work generally is identified with a particular discipline but may be broader in scope, involving courses and research in several disciplines. The candidate for an advanced degree presents work conducted in a chosen major area, but it also is expected that he or she will have completed supporting work at an upper-division or graduate-level in one or more relevant areas. The three components of graduate study are didactic coursework, independent study, and scholarly research leading to a thesis or dissertation. The proportion of each type of study may vary according to the previous training of the individual student and the nature of the major discipline.
