Fitchburg State University is a public institution dedicated to integrating high-quality professional programs with strong liberal arts and sciences. Founded in 1894, we now have more than 30 undergraduate programs, 22 master’s degree programs, and 7,000 full and part-time students. Located in central Massachusetts, campus based students have access to a local ski mountain, a variety of hiking trails, and the commuter rail train station taking them into downtown Boston, to name a few.
We offer a variety of online and low residency hybrid graduate degrees in focus areas such as education, liberal arts, nursing, business, and computer science. Our programs are high-quality, flexible and meet future students where they are. Whether you’re looking to develop a specific skill set and grow in the industry you’re currently a part of, or you want a career change and need your education to support that change, Fitchburg State is a great next step.
It’s never too late to go back to school to earn your advanced degree and our students are representative of that. While many students continue on in a graduate program upon completion of their undergraduate degree, we have students who have many years of work experience who choose to pursue their master’s degree with us.
Fitchburg State University offers graduate programs that are affordable, with some of the lowest tuition rates in the northeast. Tuition rates are the same for all graduate students regardless of your residency. Whether you live in Massachusetts, are out-of-state, or are international, the cost is the same, though it may vary by program or modality. With a streamlined admission process that does not require the GRE or GMAT for admission consideration for any of the master’s programs offered, we have accessible and practical options for you.
