THE GRADUATE SCHOOL

 

The University of Kentucky began offering graduate work
in 1870 and awarded its first graduate degrees in 1876. The
Graduate School became a distinct unit in the University
organization in 1912.

The mission of the Graduate School is to promote ad-
vanced study, graduate instruction, and research by the
faculty and students of all colleges and departments. The
total graduate resources of the University are merged under
it for the purpose of promoting the acquisition of knowledge
in an atmosphere of free and lively inquiry.

Graduate work is off
