Graduate School


Students who are interested in pursuing a graduate degree are encouraged to reach out to their major advisors or a professor in their intended field of study for further guidance. They may be able to advise on additional courses or steps a student may need to take to prepare for graduate study.


Students who may be interested in continuing their education at SF State in a graduate program should review the Graduate Studies website regarding university-wide graduate study admission requirements. For information about a specific degree program, students should contact the program coordinator directly
