Graduate & Postdoctoral News

Graduate Programs Still Accepting Applications

We recognize that many students' plans for the 2020-2021 academic year may have changed recently, and we hope to support you in your exploration of graduate studies at Tulane University. We have compiled a list of all of the programs (representing every school in the university and a wide range of subjects and degree types), which are still accepting applications for the 2020-2021 Academic Year. Check out the full list here!


Congratulations, Rachel Wise and Stephen Formel, Grand Prize and People's Choice winners, respectively, of Tulane's Fifth Annual Three Minute Thesis Competition! For more information about the 2019 Tulane 3MT competition, please click here.

In 2019, more than 1800 graduate and professional students have started work towards advanced degrees at Tulane and we are thrilled to welcome you all to campus. OGPS conducted orientation for new graduate students in the Schools of Liberal Arts, Medicine - Biomedical Sciences, and Science and Engineering on August 20. On August 21, OGPS held orientation for new teaching assistants from the same schools. We will have slides from both posted shortly in case you need to refer to anything from those days.

Congratulations Graduates! In the 2018-2019 academic year, 125 students received PhDs, 52 students received MAs, 11 students received MFAs, and 271 students received MSs! Students graduated from seven different schools within Tulane University and in 46 different disciplines.
