Graduate Curricula

Main Content

The academic programs, graduate faculty, and course descriptions are outlined on this page. The official descriptions of programs leading to graduate degrees are arranged below in alphabetical order. Admission and degree requirements which are listed within the Academic Policies, Requirements, and Procedures tab are minimum standards. The student should consult the specific program description for additional criteria imposed by the department. All programs are cross-listed to aid in locating the official description. Several departments offer one or more concentrations within the major as noted in the Academic Policies, Requirements, and Procedures tab. The requirements for these concentrations may be found in the program description.

Graduate instruction is the responsibility of the graduate faculty. The faculty are arranged in terms of their departmental affiliations. Faculty teaching in interdisciplinary programs are listed under the appropriate programs and are identified as to the department in which they hold an appointment. The first of the two dates listed with the name of a faculty member indicates the year in which the highest degree was earned; the second date indicates the year when the person first became a faculty member at Southern Illinois University Carbondale.

The 400- and 500-level courses offered by Southern Illinois University Carbondale are listed numerically within each program section. The first entry for each course is a three digit identification numeral. Courses numbered 400–499 are open to both seniors and graduate students, unless designated otherwise. Courses numbered above 499 are for graduate students only. Following the course identification number is another number which indicates maximum credit allowed for the course. The maximum may vary, and specific semester hours may be assigned for each term a course is offered. Following the course description may be prerequisites which must be satisfied before a student will be permitted to enroll. Graduate students will not receive graduate credit for Pass/Fail grades taken at the 400 level. Graduate credit is awarded for 500 level courses which have been approved to be graded S/U (Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory) only. All courses offered in a specific term will be listed in the appropriate Schedule of Classes which can be found at: registrar.siu.edu/schedclass.
