Staff Reports

More than 50 current and former Carson Valley residents will receive degrees in this week's University of Nevada, Reno, graduation ceremony.

Eight residents will receive master's degrees and 47 will get bachelor's degrees, according to the university.

The University of Nevada, Reno's 128th Commencement will confer 3,137 degrees, the largest amount of degrees conferred in one semester. The commencement exercises will take place over four ceremonies in three days – Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and will be on the University's Quad, located on the southern part of campus. Each ceremony focuses on particular colleges, and both undergraduate and graduate degrees for each of those colleges will be granted.

During the University's Commencement ceremonies this year, 2,519 bachelor degrees, 549 advanced-degrees (master's and doctoral degrees) and 69 University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine degrees will be awarded. The University awarded 2,808 total degrees last spring and has seen a 50-percent increase in degrees conferred since 2010 due to increased enrollment and improved graduation rates.

The schedule for awarding the degrees is:

5 p.m. Thursday: College of Engineering, Orvis School of Nursing and College of Science
