Graduate School

The Graduate School is a community of 5300 graduate and professional students enrolled in nearly 100 fields of study with programs located on the Ithaca campus and at Cornell Tech in New York City.  

Graduate study is cross disciplinary by design, and students experience an unusual degree of freedom and flexibility in our graduate programs. It is a culture of collaboration and interdisciplinary possibilities.

We are organized into fields of study that are independent of traditional college and department divisions. Fields are formed when faculty members come together around a shared intellectual interest, and may draw from different campuses, colleges, or departments.

In our graduate fields of study, many of which offer multiple graduate degrees at both the master’s and doctoral levels, students can shape a course of study that cuts across interrelated field offerings and develop a distinctive academic framework with the help of a special committee of faculty advisors chosen by the student.

We are proud of the genuine sense of camaraderie among professors and students that would be impossible in a less intimate city or campus, and our field structure encourages relationships that cross colleges, campuses, and the globe.

The Graduate School provides a stimulating, challenging, and deeply rewarding environment that aims to develop and nurture the next generation.
