The World Needs More Cowboys, Graduate Programs

Graduate Programs

97,914 square miles. 600,000 people. One university producing graduates as varied as our topography.

Welcome to Wyoming—a state that has poured its heart and soul into its singular doctoral-granting university.

UW is a proud land grant institution and as such embraces the imperative to create, disseminate and put knowledge to work. We are what Wyoming and the world needs us to be: an ag college, an engineering college, a college of law, business, education and the arts. We offer 90 graduate programs and 80 undergraduate, conduct research on topics as diverse as obesity and renewable energy and attract tens of millions of dollars annually in external research funding.*

More importantly, we welcome the restless seekers and creators and individualists, who recognize that the winds of inspiration blow fiercely where ideas have room to roam.

Next Steps to Apply

Admission to graduate programs at the University of Wyoming is competitive. Each program has its own admission requirements, application processes and deadlines. As such, you MUST contact your graduate program directly to inquire about their specific requirements and processes. Some programs admit new graduate students to start in the Fall semester only.

Regardless of the process your graduate program follows, admission decisions will be made by your respective graduate program and your eligibility for enrollment will be verified by the UW Admissions Office, including the receipt of all needed official transcripts and documents.

Students not admitted, or not wishing to pursue immediate admission to a graduate program may choose to pursue graduate coursework as a "non-degree seeking" graduate student. Check with Admissions to learn more about the limitations of this option.



In addition to completing your academic program's requirements, all prospective international graduate students must also include the following:
