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.
