Yale University Resources and Services
Founded in 1701, Yale began as an undergraduate college. In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries Yale added, one by one, the graduate and professional schools that now constitute a major university. Today, a combined total of more than 12,000 students in the undergraduate college, the graduate school, and the twelve professional schools study for thirty-six different degrees. A faculty of more than 4,000 men and women teach and administer programs across a range of disciplines in the sciences and engineering, the social sciences, the humanities, and the arts.
