Fitchburg State University is a public institution dedicated to integrating high-quality professional programs with a strong liberal arts and sciences foundation. Founded in 1894, the University now has more than 30 undergraduate programs, 22 master’s degree options, 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, the commuter rail train station that takes them into downtown Boston, and much more.
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 and flexible, meeting 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, 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 to a graduate program immediately upon completion of their undergraduate degree, the University has students with 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 for our graduate programs are the same for all our students regardless of your residency. Whether you live in Massachusetts, are from out of state, or are international, the cost is the same (although it may vary by program or modality). With a streamlined admission process that doesn’t require you to submit GRE or GMAT scores for consideration for any of the master’s programs offered, we have accessible and practical options for you.
