Graduate Programs

Welcome to our Graduate Programs!

In the College of Education and Public Policy (CEPP) we have 8 graduate programs. Many of the programs are offer classes later in the day. Several classes are offered as a hybrid meaning we have combined the best of face to face meetings and on-line learning. This translates into your class meeting on campus once a week with an on-line learning component. Our students praise the small class size, full-time professors and best teaching practices used in our programs. Explore our programs and then contact a professor listed in an area of study you would like to pursue.
