Graduate Programs

Ashland University's graduate education programs seek to respond to the career goals of professionals through alternative scheduling options, such as fast track courses, and through a focus on highly practical knowledge and skills.

Graduate students  begin a career in teaching through our Bachelor's Plus and other initial licensure programs or they can add a second teaching license. Current teachers can refine their classroom  skills or prepare for a new role in education through our various licensure, endorsements and Master of Education Programs. Finally, the Dwight Schar College of Education offers the most advanced level of study through our interdisciplinary Leadership Studies Doctoral Program.
