The University of Kansas is a major public research and teaching institution with approximately 70 graduate departments. This website provides summary data for Lawrence and Edwards-campus master’s and doctoral programs as one-page program profiles. Master’s program profiles began in 2015.
Profiles include data on faculty, enrollment, admissions, financial support, the number of degrees completed and postdoctoral plans. Individual department and program websites contain the most detailed information about the data in these profiles, and prospective applicants are encouraged to consult the departmental or program website for the most comprehensive information.
Additional information below describes the information about the data included in each profile.
Questions about the data in the profiles should be directed to the Office of Graduate Studies at firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions about the academic programs should be directed to the respective department.

Admissions tables show average number of applicants, admissions, and enrollments in the program during the application cycles. Master’s program tables show averages for the three most recent spring/summer/fall application cycles; doctoral profiles show averages for summer/fall cycles. When available, GRE scores and GPA data from previous institutions are included in averages. Programs are encouraged to use holistic admissions. Program websites contain more information about the many factors that are considered in admissions.
Student support includes any assistance disbursed through or recorded in the university HR Pay, financial aid, student financials, or third party payment systems. Assistantship data are calculated for 9 months, and includes appointments in departments other than the students’ program, including on the Medical Center campus, if applicable. Other support includes assistance received during the academic year as of that date. Other institutional support may include tuition waivers and adjustments; scholarships, grants, and fellowships; and other grant-funded or institutional support. Some external support may not be included.
Departmental Faculty includes tenured and tenure track faculty, regular and temporary instructors, and other instructional faculty paid by the department governing this program. Faculty counts are taken in October of each year and may include faculty administrators and tenured faculty on phased retirement.
Enrollment and demographic counts are included for the most recent fall and averaged for the previous three fall semesters.
Degree counts and time to degree data are included for the previous six years, in three-year increments. Time to degree calculations are based on time elapsed from the first semester enrolled as a degree-seeking graduate student in the program's department to the graduation term. For doctoral students, time to degree from first doctoral enrollment is also provided.
Postdoctoral plans as reported on the Doctoral Completions Survey at the time of dissertation submission are included for the most recent five years available.
