A diverse population of 1,300 students from around the world pursue MA, MS, MFA, and PhD degrees in over thirty concentrations as well as interdisciplinary certificates.
Our nationally and internationally recognized faculty members excel at translating their scholarly expertise into top-quality graduate programs.
Our graduates have secured tenure-track faculty positions at top-ranking universities as well as high-impact appointments in government, industry, and the non-profit sector.
Fellowships, assistantships, and research placements provide opportunities for graduate students to gain experience teaching, advising, and conducting research.
Students benefit from both the broad range of Dietrich School courses and curricula and the array of resources and opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaboration.
Our Grad Expo and 3MT competition provide students with the opportunity to present their research and engage in interdisciplinary networking with faculty and peers.
Welcome from Dean Hoock
Graduate education is a public good and central to the academic mission of the University of Pittsburgh. Graduate students are at the core of the Dietrich School’s excellence in research and education.
Technological progress can make the economy grow, but there’s always a dark side. For example, due to automation, the jobs that low-skill workers usually take have been in decline, and it has increased inequality.
