About the Cornell University Graduate School

Graduate education has been an important part of Conell’s mission and history since the Graduate School’s founding in 1909.

We offer professional and research master’s degrees and Ph.D. programs in nearly 100 fields. Our students come from 117 countries around the world to form an energized, global, diverse, and highly engaged graduate student body. Together with our campus and community partners, we strive to provide our students with a welcoming and supportive environment that fosters academic and professional success.

Land Acknowledgement

Cornell University’s Ithaca campus is located on the traditional homelands of the Gayogo̱hó:nǫ? (the Cayuga Nation).

The Gayogo̱hó:nǫ? are members of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, an alliance of six sovereign Nations with a historic and contemporary presence on this land. Th Confederacy precedes the establishment of Cornell University, New Yourk state, and the United States of America. We acknowledge the painful history of Gayogo̱hó:nǫ? people, past and present, to these lands and waters.
