Graduate and Professional Studies
Welcome to the School of Graduate and Professional Studies at Shepherd University. The School, located in 212 Byrd Science Center, is responsible for Shepherd’s master’s programs, doctoral program, graduate certificates, continuing education, lifelong learning, and professional development courses across a wide range of disciplines.
Our graduate faculty are known for their student-centered approach that encourages creativity, innovation, and scholarship. In each of the disciplines our programs represent, students flourish by enjoying close contact with faculty mentors and a supportive community of graduate peers. Graduate students can participate in Shepherd’s graduate culture through a variety of student advisory councils and university committees.
Should you have questions about any specific degree program, I encourage you to contact the graduate program coordinator for your degree program, or your questions can also be directed to the School of Graduate and Professional Studies. We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you here on the campus.
