Yale University

Graduate School of Arts and Sciences

Few places can claim the extraordinary history of the University of Yale. Founded in 1701, Yale ranks among the most prestigious universities in the World.

Undergraduate admission to Yale College is considered the “most selective” in the US. As of October 2020, 65 Nobel laureates, five Fields Medalists, four Abel Prize laureates, and three Turing Award winners have been affiliated with Yale University. Yale has been for centuries a bastion for the study of classical language and culture, which is reflected today in the programme in Early Modern studies as integrated into the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.

Yale Graduate School of Arts and Sciences is the oldest graduate school in North America. It was established in 1847 and is one of twelve constituent schools of Yale University and the only one that awards the degrees of Doctor of Philosophy, Master of Philosophy, Master of Arts, Master of Science, and Master of Engineering.

The school is administered in four divisions – Humanities, Social Sciences, Biological, and Physical Sciences – and its faculty are divided into 52 departments and programs. Its facilities include a university library system of nearly fifteen million volumes, the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, and the Yale University Art Gallery.
