SEMANTIC ANALYSIS

The results of our semantic analysis are shown below using the website's language.

They are the main concepts covered by ashland.edu.

Each concept has a confidence score. The higher it is, the more important the topic is relative to the page.

Topics
Ashland University Confidence: 88% Arrow up

Ashland University is a mid-sized, private, non-profit university in Ashland, Ohio, United States.

The university consists of a main campus and several off-campus centers throughout central and northern Ohio.

It was founded in 1878 and is affiliated with the Brethren Church.

Judeo-Christian values are the foundation of the educational and social environment of the university.

Higher education Confidence: 75% Arrow up

Higher education, post-secondary education, or third level education is an optional final stage of formal learning that occurs after completion of secondary education.

Often delivered at universities, academies, colleges, seminaries, conservatories, and institutes of technology, higher education is also available through certain college-level institutions, including vocational schools, trade schools, and other career colleges that award academic degrees or professional certifications.

Tertiary education at non-degree level is sometimes referred to as further education or continuing education as distinct from higher education.

Graduate school Confidence: 72% Arrow up

A graduate school (sometimes shortened as grad school) is a school that awards advanced academic degrees (i.e. master's and doctoral degrees) with the general requirement that students must have earned a previous undergraduate (bachelor's) degree with a high grade point average.

A distinction is typically made between graduate schools (where courses of study vary in the degree to which they provide training for a particular profession) and professional schools, which offer specialized advanced degrees in professional fields such as medicine, nursing, business, engineering, or law.

The distinction between graduate schools and professional schools is not absolute, as various professional schools offer graduate degrees (e.g., some nursing schools offer a master's degree in nursing).

Also, some graduate degrees train students for a specific profession (e.g. an MSc or a PhD in epidemiology trains a person to be an epidemiologist).

Ohio Confidence: 72% Arrow up

Ohio is an Eastern state in the Great Lakes region of the United States.

Ohio is the 34th largest by area, the 7th most populous, and the 10th most densely populated of the 50 United States.

The state's capital and largest city is Columbus.

Undergraduate education Confidence: 72% Arrow up

Undergraduate education is the post-secondary education previous to the postgraduate education.

It includes all the academic programs up to the level of a bachelor's degree.

For example, in the United States an entry level university student is known as an undergraduate, while students of higher degrees are known as graduates.

In some other educational systems and subjects, undergraduate education is post-secondary education up to the level of a master's degree; this is the case for some science courses in Britain and some medicine courses in Europe.
