UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS

Buenas yan Håfa Adai!

As we begin this academic year during a global pandemic, many are grappling with what comes next. I want to assure our prospective and incoming students that this is perhaps the most critical time to pursue higher education, invest in your future, and expand your opportunities for a successful career.

Stepping into the university environment, even if you’re unsure what path you’d like to take, will help you reimagine your potential. Your investment here will help you gain an edge in a tougher job market and enhance your job security.

This Catalog is a detailed guide of the diverse selection of readily accessible, economical, and high-value degrees available at the University of Guam. These degree programs will allow you to enter into and advance in a plethora of professions from civil engineering to nursing to public administration and more.

And as an accredited institution with excellent opportunities for mentorship and value-added experiences, UOG students are well-positioned for acceptance into and success in advanced degree programs at prestigious universities. Alumni who graduated last May are now beginning law school, dental school, and premedical programs as well as various master’s programs.

I encourage you to use this Catalog to discover your path. And along that path, be sure to utilize our comprehensive set of student services to help you succeed — including counseling, tutoring, advisement, financial assistance, disability assistance, veteran assistance, career development resources, and more detailed throughout this Catalog.

Additionally, I encourage you to take advantage of the many opportunities through UOG to build your personal portfolio. Program-specific internships, research opportunities with faculty of research centers, course-based service learning, and clinical and capstone experiences will all strengthen your overall professional development.

Seize your time here at UOG, and let us know how we can help.

Biba, UOG Tritons!

GRADUATE STUDENTS

Buenas yan Håfa Adai!

Congratulations on taking this next significant step in your education! It’s a decision that will undoubtedly advance your way of thinking, broaden your perspectives, and impact your career. We’re excited to guide you on this path and to soon include your work among the impressive and impactful research that our graduate students have produced.

Alumni from our master’s programs are now making valuable contributions as leaders, administrators and executives, teachers and counselors, business owners, and more throughout the region and beyond. For many of them, their graduate studies not only resulted in the degree to obtain an advanced position, but facilitated important connections in the community toward work they’re passionate about.

We are proud to offer the people of Micronesia an academic experience that is accredited institution-wide under the Western Association of Schools & Colleges. Last year, we also celebrated seven years of re-accreditation for our Professional Master of Business Administration program from the International Accreditation Council for Business Education.

The University aims to enrich our students’ professional development through value-added experiences that will strengthen the overall meaning and quality of your graduate degree. Opportunities abound to collaborate on research and to present research in front of international as well as local audiences, and we will be encouraging you and guiding you in taking advantage of these.

We continue to evolve our program offerings to meet the changing needs of our community and regional workforce. The Master of Science in Sustainable Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources program, for example, is our newest master’s program, started in 2017, to accommodate a growing interest of the population.

We know your graduate studies here at UOG will reap many rewards — for you and for the communities you will impact. Seize your time here, and let us know how we can help.

Biba, UOG Tritons!
