What makes Messiah College's graduate programs unique?
Our faith-based and academic distinction
Messiah College’s reputation as a nationally ranked, accredited college that successfully integrates top-tier academics and Christian faith uniquely positions our graduate programs. Our curriculum and coursework are instantly relevant to your area of study and career.
A convenient combination of online and classroom learning
With the exception of our occupational therapy program, Messiah’s graduate coursework is conducted primarily online. Some programs are fully online while others combine online courses with a few one-week on-campus sessions. Created with working professionals in mind, our programs help you balance your studies, career, family and personal life. Many of Messiah’s graduate programs can be completed in as little as two years. Plus, we keep class sizes small so that you can build meaningful relationships with your classmates and professors.
Our accomplished faculty
All of Messiah College’s graduate programs are taught by Messiah’s own faculty, effective Christian educators who are practicing professionals, outstanding scholars, researchers, authors and sought-after experts in their fields. Messiah’s faculty will mentor and advise you throughout all stages of your program as you engage your faith, explore your profession and advance your education and career.
Our mix of degree and non-degree options
Messiah’s graduate programs provide a variety of choices for master’s degrees and non-degree options such as professional certificates and certifications and Act 48 continuing education credits. We also offer a Doctor of Nursing Practice family nurse practitioner program.
We are affordably priced
We strive to keep our graduate programs competitively priced and accessible. Talk with our team to explore your individual options for financial aid. A deferred tuition option is also available if your employer reimburses graduate-level tuition.
