A Message from Our Dean

We welcome you to explore the many offerings of our graduate programs here at the University of Florida.  The reputation of a research university is, in large part, measured not only by the excellence of its graduate faculty and graduate students, but also, importantly, by the quality of its academic graduate programs. Through its chosen graduate faculty members, the University of Florida is able to offer graduate programs of the highest quality.

Our catalog is intended to provide information and resources to those interested in graduate education programs at the University of Florida and also is here for our current students, by helping them to make the best decisions, in order to maintain and continue their academic progress, while on the way to their professional and personal goals.  

Henry T. Frierson, PhD
Associate Vice President and Dean of the Graduate School
