The graduate student handbook is your guide to what is expected of you in order to get your MS or Ph.D degree from the University of Pittsburgh. Be sure to check it each year since the requirements do change from time to time.
Every graduate student has to write a thesis or dissertation before being awarded a MS or Ph.D degree. Browse our publications section for recently posted theses, dissertations, and presentations. All theses and dissertations are submitted online. Visit the ETD Website for more information on the process.
Many graduate students travel to present their work at national conferences. A number of travel grants are available through the department, the university, and professional societies to help cover the costs associated with such trips.
