Postgraduate education at UGM, especially for doctoral programs have been developed since 1950. As for the master program was developed from 1980 after the government set stratification college level that includes S1, S2, and S3.

At first we have to admit that the public interest to pursue education in the S2 program (master's degree) and program S3 (doctorate) is still lacking. But along with the times and increasing competition in the era of globalization makes the public interest to pursue higher education is increasing. Even today there are some people who think that by passing the S1 (undergraduate) is not enough. It is therefore not surprising that the number of prospective students S2 and S3 from year to year increase. Passion the general public in response to S2 and S3 was also followed by both government agencies and private institutions, such as the Local Government (LG), enterprises, public enterprises, NGOs, private companies and so on. They realize that having quality human resources is one way to optimize an institution.

UGM graduate should be proud because it has more than 259 professors and 767 PhD graduates at home and abroad from different disciplines who are able to meet people's desire to improve their competencies through education and the teaching and research developed in S2 and S3 a multidisciplinary program.
