Our Program

The Graduate School at The University of Texas at Austin enrolls nearly 11,000 graduate students in more than 100 fields of study.

Any good university educates its students. But a great university—a university with monumental impact and a tradition of intellectual leadership—does more. It transforms lives on a grand scale.

Or, as we like to say, what starts here changes the world.

Since 1883, students from across Texas and around the world have come to The University of Texas at Austin to seek challenges and open doors to the future. Graduate students choose the university for its reputation for academic excellence, its commitment to research and teaching, and its location. They also choose it for the diversity—in all its forms—evident on campus, and for which Austin is famous.
