Graduate Education

Returning to school for a graduate degree often means making tough choices. While the rewards are tangible, the sacrifices are real. The Office of Graduate Education will be there from the time a student first expresses an interest in studying at Mason to the moment they walk across the stage to obtain a degree.

The mission of the Mason Graduate Education Office is to enable students to achieve their personal and career goals by supporting advanced learning, research and scholarly study, enhancing professional development, and promoting well-being. 

Our office, in partnership with academic unit leaders and the Graduate Council, will provide students with an education of the highest caliber, and the services they need to take full advantage of it.

We'll help them find financial support, be it a grant, a fellowship, or a position as a graduate assistant or lecturer.

As they join Mason's community of scholars and researchers, Graduate Student Life will help them find a life outside the classroom and lab.

And during their time here, we'll help them develop the professional skills and connections needed to establish a thriving career.
