Research and Experience are Key to an SU Graduate Degree

The University’s graduate programs are diverse and designed to support the individual academic and professional needs of each program’s participants. However, central to all the programs are student research and self-directed projects. From dissertation and thesis research to capstone classes or experiences, these projects challenge graduate students to not only ask the big questions, but also to work to find solutions to them. SU has the resources to help you achieve your goals.
