As one of the nation’s leading public universities, the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) is dedicated to creating an academic environment that celebrates the rich diversity of our campus and the communities we serve. Committed to teaching, research, and public service, our faculty are among the highest-ranked scholars in the world and have received international academic recognition. Six UCLA faculty members have been awarded Nobel Prizes, more than 300 have received Fulbright Scholarships, 3 are Pulitzer Prize winners, and over 270 have been awarded Guggenheim Fellowships. Graduate students work side-by-side with faculty in scholarly exploration that has built UCLA’s international reputation and legacy of preparing future leaders who make significant contributions in all areas of society.
UCLA offers graduate degrees in 133 programs. Almost every academic program is a subset of a department, which in turn is a subset of a school, institute, or division. Aspiring students to academic programs apply through a single application. See our Steps to Apply. At the beginning of the application you specify your program, then the application will customize questions, requirements, and requests for supplemental material for that specific program. For applicants to professional schools for JD, LLM, DDS, full-time MBA, FEMBA, and EMBA the application process is unique for each, and in general you apply through that program’s site: UCLA School of Dentistry, UCLA School of Law, Anderson School of Management, and David Geffen School of Medicine. You can direct further questions directly to the individual programs themselves.
The Graduate Division at UCLA is responsible for the overall quality and progress of graduate education at UCLA. The Graduate Division serves as the administrative core for graduate recruitment and admissions. Over the years between your Graduate Welcome Reception and the awarding of your degree, we will also participate in the milestones marking your individual academic progress and work to ensure that the education you receive here continually strives for the highest quality.
Individual UCLA Graduate Programs are spread across campus, and each address is listed on their program page. Graduate Division offices are located on the first floor of Murphy Hall. Our walk-in hours are from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday and our phone hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. You can find us in the northeast section of campus.
