A welcome message from the Dean of the Graduate College

Welcome to the Graduate College, a dynamic part of the University’s mission in terms of advancing leadership, the pursuit of social justice, and the formation of practitioner-scholars. Our graduate faculty and student research is transformative in the way knowledge generated within various disciplines is applied in service to our local and global communities. To come to St. Catherine University for graduate study, whether in-person or on-line, is to be immersed in the welcoming environment of an educational community that serves the broader society through fieldwork, practica, and internships.

Our graduate students learn to use the analytic and applied research skills critical for success in a variety of professional contexts, including healthcare, business and leadership, library and information science, teacher education, and theology. Right from the beginning of graduate study, we are dedicated to helping students shape their career trajectories, whether entering a new career or developing further an existing career. Although graduate education takes time, patience, and commitment, the path ahead is smoother because you will find that your fellow students, faculty, and staff are ready to help you succeed and enjoy the journey.
