WSU Graduate School

Develops professionals in every field

An even higher education

With more than 40 master’s programs, 12 doctoral programs and many certificate options, the Graduate School focuses on preparing leaders, teachers and researchers for the next stages of their careers. Being situated in Kansas’ largest city gives our students more opportunities to put their skills to work through applied learning experiences or working full-time while earning their graduate degree. A gift to the Graduate School trains and refines leaders in diverse areas of study from all over the world. Their skills then power our industry and institutions.
