SEMANTIC ANALYSIS

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

They are the main concepts covered by psu.edu.

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

Topics
Research I university Confidence: 91% Arrow up

Research I university was a category that the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education previously used to indicate universities in the United States that engage in extensive research activity.

Pennsylvania State University Confidence: 82% Arrow up

The Pennsylvania State University (commonly referred to as Penn State or PSU) is a public, land-grant, research-intensive university with campuses and facilities throughout Pennsylvania.

Founded in 1855, the university has a stated threefold mission of teaching, research, and public service.

Its instructional mission includes undergraduate, graduate, professional and continuing education offered through resident instruction and online delivery.

Its University Park campus, the flagship campus, lies within the Borough of State College and College Township.

It has two law schools, Penn State Law, on the school's University Park campus, and Dickinson Law, located in Carlisle, 90 miles south of State College.

The College of Medicine is located in Hershey.

Penn State has another 19 commonwealth campuses and 5 special-mission campuses located across the state.

Penn State has been labeled one of the "Public Ivies," a publicly funded university considered as providing a quality of education comparable to those of the Ivy League.

Doctorate Confidence: 77% Arrow up

A doctorate (from Latin docere, "to teach") or doctor's degree (from Latin doctor, "teacher") or doctoral degree (from the ancient formalism licentia docendi) is an academic degree awarded by universities that is, in most countries, a research degree that qualifies the holder to teach at the university level in the degree's field, or to work in a specific profession.

There are a variety of doctoral degrees, with the most common being the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), which is awarded in many different fields, ranging from the humanities to the scientific disciplines.

There are also some doctorates in the US, such as the Juris Doctor (JD), Doctor of Medicine (MD) and Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO), which are generally regarded internationally as professional degrees rather than doctorates, as they are not research degrees and no defense of any dissertation or thesis is performed.

Many universities also award honorary doctorates to individuals who have been deemed worthy of special recognition, either for scholarly work or for other contributions to the university or to society.

Undergraduate education Confidence: 77% 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.

Public university Confidence: 76% Arrow up

A public university is a university that is predominantly funded by public means through a national or subnational government, as opposed to private universities.

Whether a national university is considered public varies from one country (or region) to another, largely depending on the specific education landscape.
