The Graduate School comprises a group of academic disciplines called Fields of Study, some of which contain more focused disciplines called Areas of Concentration. Each Field of Study and Area of Concentration is established by the Graduate School and licensed and accredited by the Board of Governors of Higher Education. When a degree is conferred through the Graduate School, it is in a recognized Field of Study (and, where applicable, Area of Concentration).
