Welcome to the School of Graduate and Professional Education. Within our School you will find information on our five master’s degrees, one graduate certificate and the professional education programs. The hallmark of each program is our commitment to the preparation of knowledgeable and effective practitioners who will manifest leadership, service, and meaningful engagement in their professions and society. We aim for our graduate students to have the best possible experience during their academic studies in our superb campus by ensuring:
