Message from the Dean
Greetings from the Graduate School at Central Connecticut State University! Whether you are returning to higher education after some time away or have recently received your undergraduate degree, we are glad that you are considering our university for graduate studies. Having conferred our first master’s degree in 1955, CCSU has a rich history of graduate education. Today, students can choose from over 40 programs of study from a wide variety of subject areas in Education and Professional Studies, Arts and Science, Technology and Engineering.
CCSU offers graduate students the opportunity to pursue their academics and professional development in an enriching environment—one where faculty and students together reap the benefits of small classrooms and one-on-one mentoring relationships. Students who pursue their graduate work with us do so because they desire a national-caliber graduate program delivered by expert faculty who value both research and teaching. We recognize the needs of our students who must manage their coursework along with other professional and personal responsibilities. As a result, we offer many classes in the evening and through a hybrid approach to on-line education where at least half of your course time is in the classroom. We continue to explore alternatives in coursework delivery in order to accommodate students’ busy schedules.
I invite you to explore our website for more information about our programs and visit our beautiful campus if you can. We would enjoy learning about your future plans and how graduate studies at CCSU can help you achieve your goals. Please contact us if you have any questions and be sure to like us on Facebook.
