Profile Image


We take your success personally.
“Canisius’s MSA program provided the best environment for me to jump-start my career. The flexibility of the program enabled me to work full time while furthering my education. The field-specific courses gave me a solid foundation in the discipline. And a support system of faculty and alumni shared their expertise and network of contacts to help me achieve a career in sports.”

“Since I did most of my course work at St. Mary’s School for the Deaf, I was immersed
in a deaf and hard-of-hearing educational environment. I don’t know of a similar graduate program that provides its students with this level of hands-on, valuable teaching experience.”
Heather Karas MS ’10, Deaf Education
Teacher of the Deaf, St. Mary’s School for the Deaf

Be a leader in business
An MBA your way
At Canisius we offer an accelerated one-year MBA, a part-time or evening MBA, and an MBA in Professional Accounting. A business degree can build your résumé and enhance your career. The Richard J. Wehle School of Business is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International), a recognition less than 5% of the world’s business schools attain.

#1 in accounting in New York State
Whether you want an MBA in Professional Accounting or to specialize in Forensic Accounting, we have a top-ranked accounting program to meet your needs. You’ll receive the support and mentoring of our council on accountancy, have opportunities to intern at a Big Four firm, and be prepared to enter a career with excellent job opportunities.

Master the business of sport
Let Canisius help you break into the competitive business of sport with our master’s in Sport Administration. Our MS program prepares students for careers as coaches, facilities managers, athletic directors, sports marketing managers, scouts, and more. Get practical experience through internships with local, national, and international sport organizations.

Raise your profile in education
If you’ve chosen a career in teaching, you’re already dedicated to helping students learn, grow, and reach their potential. That’s why our CAEP*-accredited graduate programs are the perfect fit for educators who are interested in going beyond the status quo. Whether you’re looking to meet New York State requirements, learn a new content area, or take on a bigger leadership role in your building or district—Canisius professional and advanced certificate programs are a smart move.

Be a difference maker in counseling
Canisius offers the longest-running CACREP*-accredited counseling program in Buffalo and is the only college in the area with CACREP-accredited programs in both school and clinical mental health counseling. Our master’s programs in Counseling and Human Services are designed to provide the necessary training for graduate students who desire a career in either school counseling or clinical mental health counseling.

College Student Personnel Administration (CSPA)
If you love being in a college environment, consider making it your career. A master’s degree in College Student Personnel Administration prepares you to work in student service departments in higher education—from residence life and career counseling to multicultural affairs. Our program combines rigorous course work with experiential learning through two internships and opportunities for graduate assistantships. This small cohort program only starts in the fall, so apply by February 1 to be eligible for assistantships.
