Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies


The Office of Graduate & Postdoctoral Studies (OGPS) is the service and support office for all master's and PhD students in the School of Liberal Arts, School of Science and Engineering, School of Medicine - Biomedical Sciences, as well as PhD students in the Freeman School of Business and the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. The office also serves all postdoctoral fellows across the university. OGPS advances graduate education and enhances graduate training through programmatic oversight, policy development, and the implementation of career and academic workshops.

At Tulane University, many students pursuing advanced degrees receive the bulk of their support from their individual school. This includes students getting practice-based masters or doctoral degrees, such as the MPH, MBA, DrPH, MSW, JD, and MD. In cases of joint degree programs that include an MA, MS, MFA, or PhD, such as a student working on a joint MD-PhD, they can access resources from both their schools and OGPS. If you are uncertain about where you should receive support, we recommend reaching out to your program director or the dean's office of your school 

For the 2023 - 2024 academic year, OGPS oversees:
