Graduate students are responsible for knowing graduate requirements of both the Graduate College and their academic departments. Information about deadlines, and necessary forms are available on the Graduate Forms webpage.
Master's degrees may be awarded for graduate work to students who have received a recognized bachelor's degree (See Admissions Requirements). Master's degree involves advanced training gained through intensive study, beyond the bachelor's degree, in a special field (or major) supplemented by study in supporting subjects. This section outlines general graduation requirements for the different master's degrees awarded by the University of Arizona; see individual department sections under Departments and Courses of Instruction for admission requirements and detailed information on requirements for each major. Requirements vary by webpage. Other important dates are identified in the program.
