The Graduate Program at Washington College offers continuing education in a thriving liberal arts community.
Students can work closely with professors in English, history or psychology. Additional courses in education provide teachers with credits they need. Fall, spring, and summer sessions are held, mainly in the evening. The Master of Arts degree is awarded to students who complete a 30 semester-hour program (10 courses) as specified by the appropriate department.
Who is the Graduate Student?
The graduate program is designed to meet the needs of persons in the community who wish to pursue their formal education in selected areas beyond the baccalaureate degree. The primary aim of our program is to enable students to meet the requirements of the Master of Arts degree. Some students, however, continue their graduate education at other institutions, and still others seek credit toward advanced professional certification. In some cases, students take individual courses for personal enrichment. The College occasionally sponsors re-training programs for teachers.
