Cadence Count Clemson University Graduate School

The vast majority of our alumni are undergraduates, and for many of us, when we talk about the "Clemson Experience," we're thinking about those four (or more) years we experienced on campus working on our bachelor's degrees.

What you may not know is that 20 percent of current Clemson students are graduate students, working on master's or doctoral degrees in fields as diverse as human-centered computing, automotive engineering, and travel and tourism. While those students go to class and perform research, they also teach and run labs, work in departments across campus, and add to Clemson's reputation in the world with their transformative research.

Here's a snapshot of what graduate students contribute to the Clemson Experience.
