202.1 Graduate Programs Offered

    Graduate work has been offered at the University of Alberta since its inception in 1908. The present organization of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research, headed by a Dean, was adopted in 1957.

    The Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research office is primarily responsible for the general administration of graduate programs. Officers of the Faculty, in conjunction with the Faculty Council, develop and implement appropriate regulations and operating procedures. In its administrative capacity, the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research is responsible for approving applications for admission and programs of study, for certifying the satisfactory completion of each student's program prior to graduation, for maintaining the academic records of all students registered in the Faculty, and administering the graduate awards program. The Faculty also coordinates in whole or in part some functions involving several Faculties.

    Two categories of graduate degree programs are offered at the University of Alberta—doctoral and master's. The specific programs offered in each category are listed below. In addition, the Faculty offers a few credit postgraduate diploma and credit postgraduate certificate programs designed to provide an opportunity for individuals to take a sequence of courses to increase their knowledge of a specialized area without needing to enrol in a degree program.
