Welcome from the Dean

I would like to welcome new and returning graduate students to Central Michigan University and encourage potential students to consider one of our many outstanding programs at the graduate certificate, master and doctoral levels.

An advanced degree is increasingly required for jobs that lead to professionally and financially rewarding careers. CMU is classified by the Carnegie Foundation as a doctoral research university and is one of America’s 100 largest universities. Located in the classic college town of Mount Pleasant, CMU offers a friendly, safe and accessible campus.

Almost every academic department in CMU’s seven colleges offers at least one M.S. degree in addition to interdisciplinary programs. Ph.D. degrees include Educational Leadership, Earth and Ecosystem Science, Mathematics, Science of Advanced Materials, History, and several degrees in Psychology. Professional degrees include a Master in Professional or School counseling, Business Administration, and Nutrition, as well as doc-torates in Audiology, Physical Therapy and Medicine.

In addition to our on-campus programs, CMU serves students across the U.S. and around the world, either online or at one of more than 45 off-campus locations. This includes our most popular program, the Master of Science in Administration, with concentrations such as Engineering Management, Human Resources Administration and Public Administration.

Beyond the classroom, the CMU experience includes hands-on research opportunities, outdoor recreation, 18 Division I sports teams that have won 40 Mid-American Conference championships in the past decade, and nearly 400 student organizations.
