About Us

Howard University was established in 1867 – the same year that the University offered its first master’s degree. In 1934, the Graduate School was formally established; and in 1976, the school was reorganized into its current structure with divisions in the arts and humanities, biological and life sciences, engineering and physical sciences, and social sciences. The school awarded its first doctorate degree in 1958 in the field of chemistry. Today, the school offers 28 master’s and 27 doctoral programs.

Howard University is a comprehensive, research intensive and historically black private university located in Washington, D.C.

With an abiding interest in both domestic and international affairs, the University is committed to continuing to produce leaders for America and the global community.”
