Graduate Research Opportunities in Science and Engineering

As a major research institution, Vanderbilt University offers masters and doctorate degrees in a wide range of scientific and engineering disciplines. Students perform state-of-the-art research in 25 departments from the College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Engineering, the School of Medicine, and Peabody College of Education. In addition, new programs, such as Quantitative & Chemical Biology Program, the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences, and the Interdisciplinary Program in Materials Science, are designed to prepare students for scientific careers at the interface between traditionally distinct disciplines.

There is NO FEE to apply online. For a number of years, Vanderbilt has not charged an application fee for programs in the Graduate School. It is our goal that all individuals regardless of socioeconomic status are encouraged to apply for consideration for one of our programs.
