Dean: Karen D. Liller


The University of South Florida has a strong commitment to the education of future generations of scholars, researchers and leaders in professional fields and is an exciting and rewarding place to study at the graduate level.

USF offers 100 master's and specialists programs, 43 doctoral programs, a doctor of medicine, several dual degree programs and more than 100 graduate certificates. We also offer many opportunities for non-degree seeking students. The school works closely with the Office of Research and Innovation offering unique research opportunities for students. The university also provides many meritorious graduate students with teaching and research assistantships offering competitive stipends and tuition reimbursement. We support doctoral students through a number of competitive and distinguished fellowships. We also house the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs that serves all postdoctoral scholars at USF.

I hope you will take the time to learn more about graduate education and USF. Our beautiful campuses in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota-Manatee, and Lakeland (Polytechnic) await you.

Best wishes
