Bridgewater State University offers 35 graduate degree programs and licensure in 32 areas. Our academic programs can be completed on a full or part-time basis. We also offer courses at off-campus locations and online.
Many of our graduate programs allow students to enroll in up to two courses prior to being accepted into a program. To take advantage of this opportunity, please contact the appropriate graduate faculty program coordinator to learn which courses are most appropriate to enroll in as a non-matriculated student.
As you prepare to apply to a graduate program, please be aware that there are
