Welcome Message from the Dean

Here at California State University, Sacramento we have a vibrant university.  Graduate education is central to the mission of the university and our faculty and graduate students make valuable contributions to our region, the state, our nation, and abroad.

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.

In collaboration with the academic college deans, graduate coordinators, and the graduate council, we provide campus leadership and a vision for graduate education.  We manage the application process, monitor student progress, and ultimately approve students for graduation including the final review of theses and dissertations among other student support services.  We also administer assistantships, fellowships and other services.  Our number one priority is to provide quality service to prospective and current graduate and credential students.

At California State University, Sacramento, we welcome the opportunity to visit with you and assist you with your educational and career goals.

Sincerely,

Chevelle Newsome

Dean
