This fall’s Graduate School class has an increased number of international students, a slightly higher overall number enrolled than last year, and reflects more selectivity in choosing who will pursue graduate degrees, university officials say.
The incoming class includes 1,586 students, up from 1,540 in the fall of 2011. Overall, the Graduate School has about 6,300 students pursuing advanced degrees, including those enrolled in online programs.
John McCarthy is vice provost for Graduate Education and dean of the Graduate School. He is also a Distinguished University Professor.
