Our graduate students benefit from flexible, convenient—and often completely online—courses taught by faculty whose commitment to teaching, to research and to other professional activities results in national recognition. Faculty guidance strengthens students’ academic and professional ability by increasing your subject knowledge, improving your capacity for independent study, familiarizing you with the research in your field and training you to conduct meaningful research of your own.
Our programs also make significant contributions to our communities. Students, as a result of their intense, concentrated study at WCSU, are well-prepared to enter society as trained professionals and specialists, and as thoughtful, sensitive human beings with personal integrity and an appreciation of intellectual and political freedom.
Our students develop in professional in-service and pre-service programs through cooperative efforts with regional businesses, industry, government, social service and educational agencies. WCSU’s faculty and programs are dedicated to forging and maintaining such ties through the ongoing assessment of regional needs and continual interaction with community, business, professional and academic organizations.
