In 1937 a graduate division was created and the first masters' program in education established. Petition drives to establish graduate courses outside the educational field were organized by students as early as 1953 and several master programs outside of education. Ph.D. programs were established in the early 1960s that required major changes on the campus to support advanced research and instruction.
