With 5200 graduate and professional students in nearly 100 fields of study, the Graduate School administers all graduate and professional degrees at Cornell except the D.V.M., J.D., L.L.M., M.B.A.,, and M.D. degrees. The Graduate School provides critical strategic leadership and administrative and academic structures within which a diverse group of students and faculty in the graduate field system find the support, governance systems, and encouragement to thrive intellectually and professionally and achieve academic excellence.
Full-time Ph.D. and research master’s students may be awarded assistantships, which fall into four general categories: Teaching Assistant (TA), Research Assistant (RA), Graduate Assistant (GA), and Graduate Research Assistant (GRA). These awards are administered by fields and departments. International students who come from countries where English is not the first language and who will TA in their first semester at Cornell are required to participate in the Center for Teaching Excellence’s International Teaching Assistant (ITAP) summer program.
