Welcome to Graduate Education at Saint Louis University where we offer over 80 master's and doctoral degree programs in a wide variety of fields along with graduate certificates and joint or dual degree programs. Our post-baccalaureate programs in English, history, philosophy, biology, communication sciences and disorders, nursing, social work, public health, clinical psychology, physical therapy, physician assistant, health care management, health law, and occupational therapy are ranked among the best in national reports.
The mission of Graduate Education at Saint Louis University is to define and support excellence through teaching, research, scholarship, and community service. Through the discovery of new knowledge, graduate students are prepared as leaders who will use, integrate, and disseminate this knowledge to transform society in ways consistent with the values, ethics, and intellectual ideals of a Catholic Jesuit university. You will leave Saint Louis University not only with a degree but with a deeper appreciation of the impact your degree can have on your life and that of others.
The Office of Graduate Education is located within the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs. The office coordinates university-wide graduate activities, facilitates development, improvement, and quality control of graduate education. You will find links to workshops, funding or research opportunities, and campus activities that will enrich and enliven your graduate experience. Each of the schools, colleges, and centers has an associate dean or director of graduate education who is charged with overseeing the day-to-day operations of their respective graduate programs. The Graduate Education Web site provides links to administrative offices connected to your program that can help you navigate the admission process or your progress toward earning your degree. If you are a prospective student, I encourage you to explore the links on this site that will provide you with information about degree programs, faculty, and admission as well as those that give you a broader view of the University. Faculty and staff will find policy information, forms needed to assist students in their progress toward degree and information related to the Graduate Academic Affairs Committee (GAAC). Everyone associated with graduate education throughout the University is here to serve prospective and current students, alumni, faculty and staff. Do not hesitate to call on any of us. If we don't have the answer, we will find someone who does.
