Welcome to Brigham Young University. This catalog contains information about BYU’s graduate degree requirements, policies, and course offerings, as well as the University’s distinctive mission, which reflects the values of our sponsoring institution, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- day Saints.

BYU’s graduate study programs are designed to provide a depth of disciplinary knowledge, a breadth of scientific and creative discovery, and the rigor of individual and collective investment where teachers and students work together as partners in significant endeavors. Through graduate study, you become not only a consumer of, but also a contributor to, the world’s store of knowledge. Please take advantage of the tremendous resources available to you on campus. Through devoted study, observation, and contemplation, your disciplinary skills will be expanded and enhanced, and your life will be changed forever.

We are delighted that you have chosen to pursue your graduate studies here.  May your experience provide not only the opportunity, but also the ability, to make a difference in the world.  Best wishes as you begin this new journey of discovery and enlightenment.
