WCSU is a regional leader in providing graduate education in Business, Arts and Sciences, and Professional Studies. We offer an outstanding faculty, curricula and programs of high quality, state-of -the-art technology, and convenient and flexible course scheduling—including part-time, evening, and remote classes.

WCSU’s graduate programs offer advanced study under the direction of dedicated educators, most of whom are working professionals in their fields. Students benefit from faculty whose commitment to teaching, research, and professional activities has resulted in national recognition in widely varying fields. We strengthen students’ academic and professional ability by increasing your knowledge of a subject, improving your capacity for independent study, familiarizing you with the research in their fields, and training you to conduct meaningful research of your own.

Our graduate programs also make a significant contribution to the community at large. As a result of intense, concentrated study, students are well prepared to enter society not only as trained professionals and specialists, but also as thoughtful, sensitive human beings with personal integrity and an appreciation of intellectual and political freedom. Much of this understanding is developed in professional in-service and pre-service programs through cooperative efforts with regional businesses, industry, government, social service, and educational agencies.
