Who We Are

From the day you arrive at UNH to pursue your advanced degree, you’ll be immersed in a supportive, diverse, research-rich environment in a beautiful part of New England, collaborating with some of the world’s brightest and most respected minds.

The Graduate School oversees all graduate programs, including intercollegiate programs involving faculty and coursework from multiple schools or colleges. Intercollegiate programs give students the opportunity to pursue new and emerging fields of study that draw on multiple disciplines, leading to solid disciplinary foundations and the cross-disciplinary skills needed to find new social and scientific solutions.
