The College of Letters & Science is strong because of the caliber and quality of the faculty, staff and students.
One of those key players is graduate students. There are more than 4,200 graduate students in L&S who play an important role in research, teaching and public service.
L&S graduate students pursue degrees from more than 114 majors. We measure the strength and success of our academic programs and departments by the strength of our graduate students.
We are dedicated to the success of our graduate students. The quality of their education, research and teaching contributes to a vibrant community.
In turn, our graduate and professional students give back: they teach more than 85,000 credit hours each semester, play a role in our shared-governance and reinvigorate the Wisconsin Idea through outreach and public service.
