Graduate students in the Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences are part of an elite community of learners. Talented scholars come from across the country and around the world to experience the world-class educational opportunities available within our departments and programs. But the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences experience is not only about academics. We encourage our graduate students to live a balanced life that allows room for family, work, recreation, and service.
