Graduate studies enable learners to advance professionally, develop research skills, become an expert in a field or explore an intellectual interest.

The SUNY Empire State College School for Graduate Studies offers:

  • ten programs of advanced academic study leading to master’s degrees
  • fourteen advanced-certificate programs designed to support a particular career interest, which may be applicable to master’s degree programs.
