Applied learning and career development for graduate students
The School of Graduate and Professional Studies offers nine programs in a variety of fields, from music conducting to physical therapy. Some of our programs are completely online, others are predominately online and two are traditional residential programs. Regardless of format, all of Messiah University’s graduate programs incorporate experiential learning opportunities that allow you to put academic theory into practice. This hands-on learning can take the form of capstone courses, special projects, internships, graduate assistantships, field experiences or clinical experiences that give you the opportunity to practically apply what you are learning in your coursework. All of Messiah’s graduate-level experiential learning opportunities are designed around the specific learning outcomes and busy schedules of working professionals.
Visit our individual graduate program pages to learn more about the experiential learning opportunities offered by each of our various programs.
