Graduate Degree Program Codes

The Graduate Records Office uses the following codes for program degrees when it creates a spreadsheet for dissertations and theses for the library's Thesis Cataloger. The codes specify the name of the degree program to be used in the 657 field when a bibliographic cataloging record is created for each work. Note that some degree programs have undergone name changes and/or mergers over the years, but the library goes by whatever degree program name the Graduate Records Office uses.

Note that some Degree programs are missing codes. These are programs found under the subject headings “Theses–<program name>–<degree>” in the UMass library catalog, and are past programs which have been changed, merged with other departments, or no longer exist.
