Characteristics of Doctoral Programs

The Characteristics of Doctoral Programs report was developed by the Coordinating Board's Graduate Education Advisory Committee (GEAC) in 2008 to provide a snapshot of doctoral programs offered by Texas public universities and health-related institutions. In compliance with rules outlined in the Texas Administrative Code, UT Austin has published information regarding 18 characteristics of doctoral programs since 2009.  In 2017, the Characteristics were updated to include two additional characteristics that are particularly relevant for professional doctoral programs: professional licensure exam pass rates and average program tuition.   As a result, there are now characteristics that all doctoral programs report and characteristics that only research or professional programs report.  For complete information, consult the program site or contact the graduate adviser or graduate coordinator.
