Graduate School Opportunities

For over 25 years Columbus State University has been offering graduate degrees.  It now provides masters and specialist degrees in more than 35 areas of study and a Doctor of Education in Curriculum and Leadership.  Our purpose is to promote student achievement, research, scholarship, global learning, strategic partnerships, and engagement in discovery and practice.

KatelynThere 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. Moreover, 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 12 online degrees, making access easier than ever before!
