    Re: graduated at/from?

    Is it right to say I graduated in TI/Law/Engineering?

    Is there other way to say?

    I "resurected" this thread just because I searched some answer and as the doubt is quite similar I decided to ask here.

    Thank you so much.

    That is fine - you graduate in a subject, from a university.

    I "resurected" this thread
    To resurrect means to raise from the dead. I'm not sure whether you can use the word like that.
    Maybe you could say 'revive' or 'reactivate'.

    Well I'm not really sure, it's just that at that moment I couldn't find any other word, so I just put it into quotation marks, maybe I should say 'resume the thread, carry on with the topic' or something else. As long as the idea is understood it's ok to me. Anyway thank you for your attention.
