Graduate School

Virginia Tech’s Graduate School offers far more than a degree program: We help you prepare, connect, succeed, and stand out.

Students work in a lab

Based in the innovative Graduate Life Center, all of our programs, courses, workshops, and support services are rooted in the four pillars of Dean Karen DePauw’s Transformative Graduate Education Initiative: knowledge, leadership, scholarly inquiry, and social responsibility.

We complement academic disciplines and encourage interdisciplinary research and collaboration across fields. We provide professional development opportunities and support for career professionals and future professors. And we do all of this with an emphasis on diversity, ethics, technology, and global perspectives.

While at Virginia Tech, you will be part of a strong, inclusive, supportive community of graduate students, faculty, and administrators.

Get an education that crosses boundaries and prepares you for solving real-world problems, no matter what field you’re in.
