In today’s economy, an advanced degree is essential to increasing your earning potential and moving your career forward in business, public administration, health sciences, education, and more. At Kean University, we believe in offering a world-class education at an affordable price so you can advance your career without sacrificing important parts of your life along the way.
Kean University offers more than 70 master’s, doctoral, and advanced certificate programs ranging from Public and Business Administration to Speech Therapy, Counseling, and Educational Leadership. Kean’s award-winning faculty are devoted to providing full- and part-time graduate students with hands-on experiences and networking opportunities that lead to successful careers. Whether they’re gaining clinical experience in one of our health clinics or in our 3D virtual reality “CAVE” facility, our graduate students learn by researching and working alongside nationally recognized scholars.
Flexible schedules, convenient locations
Kean offers graduate students the flexibility and convenience needed to earn a degree with weekday, evening, and weekend classes on two easily accessible campuses in Union and Toms River as well as through Kean Online. Our graduate programs are designed to fit your busy schedule, allowing you to juggle the demands of your family, your career, and the advancement of your education on your own terms.
New Jersey Transit has a train station adjacent to our main campus in Union that’s just a 30-minute ride from New York City for fast access after work. Graduate housing, fitness centers, and many eateries are available for those who want to make Kean their home during their studies.
Wenzhou-Kean campus in China
More than 7,000 miles away, the Wenzhou-Kean campus in China offers opportunities for Business students and others to gain a global skill set in an international but English-speaking environment.
Financing your education
At Kean, we believe a world-class education can come without a first-class price. That’s why Kean’s in-state and out-of-state tuition rates are among the lowest in the New York metro area.
Graduate students have access to additional financial benefits like military grants and varying loan repayment options as well as additional external scholarships and grants. The Federal Work-Study Program provides jobs on and off campus for students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education-related expenses. Kean University also offers a limited number of graduate assistantships, which draw on a variety of different skills and require service on campus in exchange for having your full tuition and fees waived.
Providing the best education at an affordable cost to our students is paramount. Many competitive graduate scholarship opportunities are provided by the Kean University Foundation though a single application. This application can be accessed and submitted between October 1 and March 1. Learn more at kean.edu/scholarships.
