Graduate Program Recruitment Events (Fall 2019)

Are you considering graduate school to help advance your career?

The University of Delaware is recognized in many higher education rankings, reflecting its prominence as a research-intensive, technologically advanced institution offering more than 150 academic majors across eight colleges and serving more than 24,000 undergraduate and graduate students. UD’s distinguished faculty includes internationally renowned authors, scientists and artists. The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching classifies UD as a research university having very high research activity—a designation accorded fewer than 3 percent of U.S. colleges and universities, and it is also classified as a community engaged university.
