The University of Minnesota Duluth awards the doctor of education (Ed.D.), its highest professional degree, in teaching and learning. The Ed.D. recognizes satisfactory academic preparation and demonstrated competence for professional activity in that field. Standards and procedures for admission, and expectations for scholastic performance, are comparable to those for the doctor of philosophy degree (Ph.D.) offered at the Twin Cities campus. Rules and procedures governing examinations, candidacy, time limits, appointment of committees, and the thesis for the Ph.D. apply in general to the Ed.D.
The UMD Graduate School also awards the master of fine arts in art (emphasis in graphic design); master of arts in communication sciences and disorders, criminology and English (emphases in literary studies, English studies, and publishing and print culture); master of science in applied and computational mathematics, chemistry, computer science, geological sciences, integrated biosciences, and physics; master of business administration; master of science in electrical and computer engineering; master of science in engineering management; master of liberal studies; master of music; and master of social work.
All-University master of science and doctor of philosophy programs in integrated biosciences, toxicology, and water resources science are offered jointly with the Twin Cities campus. In addition, several graduate programs operate at UMD under the aegis of graduate programs on the Twin Cities campus. Cooperative programs offered at both the master’s and doctoral levels include biochemistry, molecular biology, and biophysics; microbiology, immunology, and cancer biology; pharmacology; and cellular and integrative physiology.
