Programs & Departments

All post-baccalaureate degree programs at Vanderbilt are classified as either Graduate, meaning those under the purview of the Graduate School; or Professional, which are advanced degree programs administered by schools other than the Graduate School. The academic programs of the Graduate School are located in and among the academic departments located in the other schools and colleges of Vanderbilt. For example, students admitted and enrolled by the Graduate School in the Ph.D. program in Economics (or Special Education, or Biomedical Engineering, or Epidemiology) pursue their academic program in an academic department based in the College of Arts and Science (or Peabody College, or the School of Engineering, or School of Medicine, respectively). In addition, a small number of interdisciplinary Graduate School academic programs are not based in a single college or school, but rather draw from faculties in departments across two or more academic units.
