Graduate Programs Offered

UM-Dearborn offers six doctoral degree programs, one specialist program and over 40 master's degree programs that are professional in their orientation. Many of our courses are offered in the evening (6:00 to 9:00 pm) and online, so graduate students can earn their degree while still meeting the demands of their professional and personal obligations.
