About Us


The Bicol University was created on June 21, 1969 by virtue of RA 5521 to give professional and technical training and provide advanced and specialized instruction in literature, philosophy, science and arts, besides providing for the promotion of scientific and technological researches. Section 6 (e) of RA 5521 also requires the Board of Regents to immediately establish a post-graduate course in liberal arts and sciences or in education leading to a master's degree.

Operating in the spirit of its charter, BU organized its Graduate School in 1971 through 
BOR Resolution No. 38, series of 1971. It also opened its first graduate program leading to Master of Arts in Education by virtue of BOR Resolution No. 39, series of 1971. Thus, on June 1971, the BUGS welcomed its first batch of 473 graduate students (1971-72 Annual Report).

In pursuit of its mandate, the Graduate School offers programs and spearheads projects that are in accordance with its institutional objectives. Initially offering three master's programs during its inception, the Graduate School has now seven (7) doctoral programs, 34 master's programs, and 24 diploma programs. Enrolment at the Graduate School has also increased substantially as well as the number of graduates during its more than three decades of existence.

The Graduate School is headed by a Dean and is assisted by a Dean and is assisted by a College Secretary. With the passage of BOR Resolution No. 42 in 1999, almost half of the graduate programs were decentralized to selected units with in-house capability. The BOR resolution redefined the role of the Graduate School according to policy framework where it will institute and administer the programs while receiving units will implement, supervise, and coordinate the decentralized graduate programs.
