 There are three great reasons for you to do graduate work at CSU.  First, CSU offers exceptional
 mentorship and professional partnerships.  You can expect one-on-one interactions with
 outstanding faculty and a close working relationship with your advisor. Morevover, faculty mentors
 guide you to service, publication, presentation, and research opportunities.  

 Second, CSU offers high-level opportunities for research, service, and teaching.  Whether through
 advanced degree programs or certificates, CSU provides real opportunities for personal and
 professional growth.   

 Finally, many of CSU's graduate programs offer great flexibility.  Most graduate classes in our
 nationally accredited programs meet in the evenings and some are on the weekends.  We also offer
 14 online degrees, making access easier than ever before!

Graduate Discovery Day 

Discovery Day is an event tailored to provide prospective graduate students an opportunity to meet with faculty, current and former students and admission staff to learn more about our graduate programs. Individuals will enjoy a catered breakfast with the prospective academic department to learn about the program they are interested in and to gain a clear understanding of the degree requirements. This event
is ideal for current Columbus State University undergraduate students who are considering graduate studies, career professionals looking for advancement, and recent college graduates looking to obtain
a Master's, Specialist, or Doctoral degree.

Check back here in the fall for the date of the next Discovery Day.
