WCSU 2021-2022 Graduate Catalog


Message From The President

Congratulations on embarking on a new stage of your education. Graduate-level studies have become more important to career success, but they also indicate your willingness to become a life long learner.

Whether you are considering an MBA, an Ed.D. in Instructional Leadership or Nursing Education, or a master’s degree in any of the 16 graduate programs Western offers, my hope is that you will find our excellent professors, accessible location, and convenient schedule challenging and appropriate for your needs.

Whatever your motivation, our pledge is to help you accomplish your goals with relevant instruction from our professors and support from our mentors and administrators. You will discover that your fellow students come from a variety of backgrounds – they may be just beginning their working lives or seasoned professionals planning to start their own business or to advance within an established organization.

Graduate school is challenging but very rewarding. Our goal is your goal: your success – both academically and professionally.

With warmest wishes,

Dr. John B. Clark
