Graduate School? It’s Possible.

Saint Rose has been meeting the needs of students since our founding in 1920, from educating women in an era when they were just earning voting rights nationally to offering night classes to GIs returning from World War II before we became a co-educational institution.
Today, we help those who want to earn advanced degrees fit it into their real-life schedules. Our new Any Time, Any Way MBA flex program gives MBA students the option to take classes in-person, via livestream, or online on their own time, and they don’t have to commit to just one mode of delivery. What’s the same? The personal attention from professors and curriculum that gives professionals the tools they need to advance their careers or grow stronger in their current roles.
For those seeking our graduate programs in computer science and information technology, eight-week courses that combine online learning and on-campus weekend sessions every two months allow working professionals to pursue master’s degrees.
And for those interested in online learning, we offer our School District Business Leader Certificate of Advanced Study and our M.S.Ed. in Educational Psychology fully online.

Be sure to check out our perks for alumni, including waiving the graduate application fee and a $1,000 per semester grant for students who take at least six credits a semester.
