Graduate Studies at SU

Salisbury University’s graduate programs help students with professional advancement and personal enrichment. Students can attain greater mastery of their fields of specialization, improve skills through independent study, and increase knowledge and skills in their areas of interest. In addition to coursework, there are opportunities for assistantships and research. SU offers 15 master’s programs, two doctoral degrees and other certificates. We strive to develop support for these high-quality, student-centered, advanced-degree programs.   

Research at SU

Undergraduate research has long been a pillar of an SU education, as students are able to work closely with dedicated faculty mentors across all disciplines. SU is home to a Research Day, the Re:Search Magazine and the Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities (OURCA). We have outstanding advocates for research on campus. We seek to expand resources to recognize, reward and support engaged students and faculty across all fields of study.
