Schools, Departments and Interdisciplinary Programs
Three of Stanford's seven schools offer undergraduate and graduate programs: Earth Sciences, Engineering and Humanities and Sciences. The other four schools offer
graduate programs: Business, Education, Law and Medicine.
A complete list of academic departments is available both alphabetically and by school. In addition, a number of interdisciplinary programs cross the boundaries between
departments and disciplines.
The Stanford undergraduate degree program is designed to achieve balance between depth of knowledge acquired through specialization and breadth of knowledge gained through
exploration. An overview of the udnergraduate program can be found in Stanford Facts. Visit the Undergraduate Academic Life website for details about academic programs
and services for undergraduates.
