Dartmouth College Offers a Selective Graduate Program Where Students Can Earn a Ph.D., A.M., M.S., M.E.M., or M.P.H.

Dartmouth's selective graduate programs are unique among Ph.D. programs, offering students smaller classes and more flexibility than traditional programs. Research achievement is the cornerstone of all Ph.D. programs, and the personal relationships with the research supervisors ensure that students are carefully guided through their teaching, research, and other graduate school experiences.

Dartmouth's graduate school gives students a number of options for areas of study. Students may earn a Ph.D. degree in biochemistry, biology, chemistry, cognitive neuroscience, computer science, earth sciences, engineering sciences, experimental and molecular medicine, genetics, health policy and clinical practice, mathematics, microbiology and immunology, pharmacology and toxicology, physics and astronomy, physiology, psychological and brain sciences, and quantitative biomedical sciences. An M.S. degree is available in computer science, earth sciences, health care delivery science, health policy and clinical practice sciences, and physics and astronomy.

Outside of the sciences, Dartmouth awards the A.M. degree in comparative literature and digital musics, as well as a special program leading to the degree of Master of Arts in Liberal Studies. Cross-disciplinary training programs are offered in environmental sciences, molecular and cellular biology, and nanomaterials.
