 The Graduate School prepares successful and innovative leaders, scholars, researchers, educators and clinicians to advance their field and impact their community and the world.  Currently, The Graduate School offers over 45 graduate degree and advanced certificate programs. The wide range of doctoral, specialist and master’s degree programs, as well as graduate certificate programs offered, provide outstanding training, research, clinical and educational opportunities.

The Graduate School aims to provide a rich intellectual, academic and research environment for educating students to become leaders in the discovery, dissemination, and application of knowledge. To help facilitate this, our graduate faculty members are selected based on experience in research, scholarship and education. They are drawn from the faculties of Augusta University’s College of Allied Health Sciences, College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, Hull College of Business, Dental College of Georgia, College of Education and Human Development, College of Science and Mathematics, College of Nursing, School of Computer & Cyber Sciences and the Medical College of Georgia. Class sizes are small, and the faculty excels in cultivating and modeling supportive, collegial and professional relationships with students. 

With outstanding programs in Allied Health, Biological and Computational Mathematics, Biomedical Sciences, Bimolecular Science, Biostatistics, Business, Computer and Cyber Science, Education, Intelligence and Security Studies, Medical Illustration, Nursing, and Public Administration- earning a graduate degree from Augusta University is time well spent!
