The Tennessee State University Graduate Catalog is the primary general information publication for the University. It is intended to provide information for students and other persons interested in the academic programs and organizations of TSU. In order to understand the activities and programs of the institution, it is important for students to know how to use this Catalog effectively.
The University provides the opportunity for students to increase their knowledge by providing programs of instruction in the various disciplines and programs through a faculty which is trained and qualified for teaching at the college level. However, the acquisition of knowledge by any student is contingent upon the student’s desire to learn and his or her application of appropriate study techniques to any course or program. As a result, the University does not warrant or represent that any student who completes a course or program of study will necessarily acquire any specific knowledge or skills, or will be able to pass or successfully complete any specific examination for any course, degree or license.
All graduate students should thoroughly familiarize themselves with the General Information and Admissions, Regulations, Policies section of the Catalog.
Students who have already made decisions concerning the area of studies in which they are interested, such as Agriculture, Business, Education, Engineering, Health Sciences or some other field, should turn to the section of the Catalog dealing with the particular interest for information about admissions, courses and degree requirements. Information about degree programs is to be found under the heading of the college or school in which the program is offered.
Students who have questions concerning their academic progress, curricula or academic standing should consult their faculty advisor, graduate coordinator, department chair or academic deans, as appropriate.
Persons interested in graduate work may inquire at the Office of the School of Graduate and Professional Studies located at Avon Williams Building, in Suite B400, 330 10th Avenue North, Nashville, TN 37203 or by phone at (615) 963-7371, or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Dean of the School of Graduate and Professional Studies is the editor of the Graduate Catalog and has final authority to determine the contents of the Catalog.
