Nearly 2,000 graduate students every year choose to expand their horizons and advance their careers through master’s, specialist and doctoral degree programs at UM-Dearborn. Graduate students at UM-Dearborn study with thought leaders in their fields, work side-by-side with faculty on cutting-edge research, explore hands-on internship and practicum opportunities and expand their professional networks. We know many of our graduate students need flexibility to meet family, work and other obligations, so we offer many of our courses in the evening and online. Our international students will find the extra supports they need to settle into a new culture and obtain the CPT and OPT placements they desire.

By enrolling in one of our 50 advanced degree programs, you’re making a commitment to yourself to expand your skill set and knowledge, develop as a leader, expand your network and advance your career. You’ll make powerful professional and industry connections that include the University of Michigan’s nearly 668,000-strong alumni network–one of the largest in the world.
