Graduate Studies at WSU

Welcome to the Graduate School at Wichita State University, where you will find innovative degree programs and world-class research. Located in Kansas’ largest city, WSU offers access to industry professionals, outstanding faculty, and state-of-the art facilities. Our programs prepare students to be immediately successful in their chosen discipline by providing professional development training and ample opportunities to take what has been learned in the classroom and apply it towards important societal and industrial problems.

Whether you are a prospective student or are already part of the Shocker family, I encourage you to explore the Graduate School’s website. The site includes information about all of our academic programs, student support services, and graduate school policies. Prospective students are additionally encouraged to discuss your educational opportunities with the academic departments, or contact us directly and we would be happy to assist you in your search for the program that best fits your interests and needs.
