graduate school

a school that offers advanced degrees.

Important! Some schools do not have a central graduate school (Emory does: Laney Graduate School). If a school does not have a graduate school, they might still offer graduate degrees via graduate programs in academic departments.

There is no difference in the value of a degree from a graduate school versus a program as long as the school is accredited; the difference is in how the degree is administered. However, there are benefits to having access to the resources of a central graduate school, such as shared programming.
