Graduate Students

H&S is home to a vibrant community of scholars pursuing master's and doctoral degrees in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences.

Determine which graduate departments and programs fit your goals. If you have questions about a specific degree or funding, contact the relevant program.

Admission takes place through the Office of Graduate Admissions. Review their website for admissions criteria, test requirements, and application deadlines.

The Office of Vice Provost for Graduate Education works collaboratively across Stanford to ensure that every graduate student has the best possible education. 

H&S has a strong focus on collaborative, interdisciplinary learning and research that crosses departmental boundaries. This open culture encourages creativity and innovation. 

H&S supports new generations of scholars that reflect the growing diversity of intellectual perspectives, life experiences, and cultures represented in society today.
