Graduate Studies and Research

The mission of  Tuskegee University Graduate Education  is to oversee preparation of the next generation of academic scholars (researchers, teachers, and service providers) to gain skills needed for expanding scientific knowledge, and to facilitate work globally in their chosen fields. 


Why You Should Choose Tuskegee

In 2011, 25 Graduate Schools offered advanced degrees in the state of Alabama. But you made a very smart choice by your interest in Tuskegee University, which from its founding by Booker T. Washington to the outstanding contributions of scientist George Washington Carver, stood as a symbol of excellence. We want you to succeed and contribute to the future of this unique center of learning. Tuskegee University's new administrative team is "Bringing the World to Tuskegee and Tuskegee to the World."


Tuskegee University, like most other centers of higher education, is a place of knowledge, ethical treatment of individuals, and concern for human suffering.   Tuskegee University is in a way a very special community located in a very unique region of the US.   Hence, applicants are expected to be sensitive to these qualities that favor a society of concerned citizens ready to be change agents. Tuskegee University, like most other universities, values free expression in the context of academic freedom, but it reserves the right to use appropriate sanctions when members of the academic community fail to meet their social and ethical responsibilities.
