The college offers graduate studies leading to master of science degree. Graduate enrollment is about 150 students.

Factors to be considered in assessing the Distinguished University Visiting Professor include the following: scholarly and teaching record, law practice experience in the relevant field, honors previously received (e.g., awards, fellowships, etc.), participation in national and international organizations, letters of recommendation and other factors relevant to assessing qualifications for this position.
