Welcome to the University of Guam/Unibetsedåt Guåhan, and to our returning alumni, welcome back! In making the decision to pursue a graduate degree, you are embarking on a deeper educational journey of enlightenment (ina), discovery (deskubre), and service (setbe) — the three tenants of our University mission. This Graduate Bulletin will serve as your roadmap on that journey.

In total, the University offers 15 master’s degrees as well as seven graduate-level certificates. These programs cover some of the most in-demand career sectors in Guam and throughout Micronesia, to include business and public administration, teaching and education, and environmental science and agriculture, among others.

If you’re not yet admitted into a graduate program, this Bulletin is a great place to explore a higher level degree that will enhance your current career or open the door to new opportunities. You can also browse each degree program in depth on the UOG website or by talking personally with our faculty members, who are experts in their fields and are here to help mentor and guide you. A complete directory of graduate faculty can be found here

This Bulletin also serves as a resource for the many services available at UOG to support your graduate experience. Academic success relies not only on coursework, but on facilities conducive to learning and studying, on your physical health and mental well-being, and on financial resources and opportunities. Be sure to browse through the listing of Student Resources and Research Institutes so you can make the most of your university experience.

Becoming a scholar and a member of an academic community carries certain responsibilities and expectations. The UOG Honor Code requires all of us to treat one another with respect and regard, to maintain our academic integrity and truthfulness, and to avoid the mistreatment of others for any reason. A strong sense of belonging is the cornerstone for your success, and we are committed to helping you feel a part of the Triton family. Please do your part to help others feel a strong sense of belonging at UOG as well.

For more than 65 years, the University of Guam has prepared the leaders, creators, innovators, and thinkers for this extraordinary region of the globe with a strong commitment to academic excellence and student success. I am glad you have chosen to join us and our important mission. You will be challenged, you be inspired, and you will be amazed.

Biba UOG!
