Welcome to the Moody School of Graduate and Advanced Studies at SMU! Thanks to a generous gift of $100 million by the Moody Foundation, the Office of Graduate Studies has separated from the Office of Research and has expanded into its own school, focused on providing SMU’s graduate students with the support they need to be successful as they engage in innovative, interdisciplinary and impactful studies.

We are proud to offer doctoral and master's degrees in a wide variety of fields. These programs help our students to pursue their passions and make significant contributions in their academic fields and beyond. We invite you to explore our site and to learn more about the programs we offer and about graduate student life at SMU.
