I am interested in graduate programs.

Classified with distinction as a Doctoral/Research University by the Carnegie Foundation in 2005, Spalding University offers over a dozen master’s and doctoral programs spread across our four colleges, several of which are unique to Spalding and otherwise unavailable in the region.  Responding to those seeking academic enrichment and enhanced upward mobility, Spalding’s graduate programs are delivered in brief-residency, session, semester or weekend offerings, and in both cohort and rolling admission formats, providing flexibility to the graduate student balancing school and work or other responsibilities. Our gifted and well-connected faculty weave their expertise with the knowledge of recognized leaders in their fields to create an unparalleled educational experience.
