Welcome to the Office of Graduate Studies

The Office of Graduate Studies is committed to the success of our students and serves as an advocate and resource for graduate education on our campus.  Graduate students are a vital part of the community of scholars, where members are actively engaged in research.  We believe that education allows us to redefine the possible and empowers us to lead for the future.  We offer master’s and doctoral level programs aimed at preparing the next generation of scholars, researchers, practitioners, and leaders.  We encourage you to take a closer look at our graduate degree, certificate, and credential programs and learn how we can help you redefine what is possible for you through our post-baccalaureate programs.
