All graduate programs, except for the Interdisciplinary Ph.D., are managed by the appropriate academic unit.

UMKC currently offers more than 50 graduate degrees at the master’s, educational specialist and doctoral levels, plus a number of graduate certificates. Graduate students represent about 26 percent of the total campus enrollment and are diverse in ethnicity, gender and racial background. As an urban university, our programs strive to accommodate adult working students. Please direct all Master’s degree inquiries to the academic units in which those degrees are offered.

Doctoral Programs

The School of Graduate Studies is responsible for monitoring compliance to the campus wide minimum graduate academic regulations; providing leadership and coordination of all graduate programs, and serves as the academic home for students admitted to the PhD program in Interdisciplinary Studies.
