Graduate Studies at WSU

Washington State University's 120 graduate and professional degree programs provide a  solid academic foundation from which students can collaborate and partner with world-class faculty to explore and develop ideas to improve our world.

We invite students to join WSU in its quest to tackle some of the world’s most crucial problems, like a safe and abundant food supply, global animal health, and clean technologies. On your  journey, you’ll learn to think critically, navigate unfamiliar territory, and engage in a dynamic, diverse multicultural community that values knowledge and integrity.

To make our students' education financially possible, we work hard to provide financial support through assistantships, fellowships, scholarships, internships, and grants and contracts. Once you’ve decided upon your field of study, explore all of the financial support we have available to help you succeed.  Read our Mission.
