More and more students are making Columbus State University their first choice for an advanced degree. With a wide array of affordable, accredited, and convenient graduate programs, CSU has the degree options to advance just about any career.

Established in 1958, Columbus State University’s academic programs have achieved national prominence and feature a diverse community of students from many different states, countries, and cultural backgrounds. Be challenged by your peers (45% minority and a growing international population) to try on new ideas. Columbus State University offers an education of transformation—with your needs in mind.

First-choice destination
We are located in Columbus, the second-largest city in Georgia and 100 miles southwest of Atlanta and Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport, one of the largest and busiest airports in the world.

Columbus State has two unique campuses: our traditional main campus located in the heart of Columbus and easily accessible from the interstate, and our RiverPark campus in downtown Columbus.

Take in outdoor concerts, relaxing cafés, and great shopping downtown. Take in the beautiful RiverWalk with untouched natural surroundings. Experience the world’s longest urban whitewater course: a two-and-a-half-mile stretch along the Chattahoochee River, all right in the middle of your campus!

Discover for yourself
Can’t make it to the campus? No problem! Our guided virtual tour of both Main and RiverPark campuses features panoramic photos and links to videos of a variety of facilities.

An education plus...
Nationally recognized for our commitment to internationalization and community service, we’re small enough to get to know you yet large enough to offer graduate degrees in more than 35 academic areas. Our purpose is to promote student achievement, research, scholarship, global learning, strategic partnerships, and engagement in discovery and practice through one-on-one interactions with outstanding faculty, mentorship, and professional partnerships.

Make it affordable
An education from CSU is not only excellent but also affordable! Because we’re a public university, our tuition is already very reasonable. Yet because we’re a smaller university, you’ll receive individual attention that is uncommon at larger universities. That translates into remarkable value!
Serving as a Graduate Assistant is also a possibility and a great opportunity to gain experience and develop your professional skills, earn a stipend, have your tuition waived, and work closely with faculty, staff, and students.

Nationally recognized
Columbus State is consistently recognized for its educational impact and outreach efforts, and many of CSU’s programs are ranked in reports such as U.S. News & World Report, Affordable Colleges Online, Top Management Degrees, and College Choice. CSU has been ranked in the top 50 among public regional universities in the South and top 100 among all regional universities in the South. CSU’s online graduate programs in Business and Computer Science were ranked among the top 35 nationwide (CEO Magazine, GoGrad.org 2016).

Many ways to belong
Professional organizations help you network with faculty, students, and employers. Expect to be challenged in small classes and with one-on-one interaction with your professors. Learning happens everywhere, with online courses, internships, research, and creative scholarship. Serving the community and studying abroad also expand your horizons.

Mentorship
Graduate students at CSU can expect exceptional mentorship through close relationships with their advisors and one-on-one interactions with world-class faculty.
