We pride ourselves on providing an exceptional network of support to our students. The enrollment counselor is the first member of your team, which also includes your graduate academic advisor and professors. While your educational path is yours to define, you can rest assured that we are available to you every step of the way.  

At Lasell we understand the unique challenges faced by our graduate students—working professionals balancing career, education, and family—and have developed our exceptional academic advising program with their success in mind. Lasell’s graduate advisors are attentive to the needs of their students and are always quick to respond when consulted for help or advice. You will remain in contact through regular in-person or Skype meetings, telephone check-ins, and e-mail, live online chat sessions, and in-person “advising nights” arranged in coordination with on-campus course schedules.

Meet your career goals
Whether you aim to advance in your current field or change careers altogether, a master’s degree from Lasell’s on-campus and online graduate programs will take you where you want to go. Data shows that employees with advanced degrees have increased job satisfaction and confidence, advance faster in their careers, and receive higher compensation than their colleagues without.

A schedule that works for you
Courses are taught in a blended format on campus in the evening and also 100% online. Online courses run in eight-week sessions, and on-campus courses are offered at night in a format that combines online learning with face-to-face meetings. Services for graduate students include academic advising, orientation, IT support, library support, and career services. Graduate students have access to a number of facilities, including smart classrooms, where faculty and students benefit from the latest technology, the Brennan Library, a graduate student lounge, dining facilities, and computer labs.
