Message from the Graduate School Dean

While our Nation faces an unprecedented time in our history, Eastern Kentucky University continues to move forward by providing advanced graduate programs built on the foundation of our over 100 year history. 

We currently offer 97 programs including options in Doctorate, Masters, Ranks, Certifications, and Endorsements.  Over half of our graduate programs allow for 100% online completion, enabling working professionals to take advantage of advanced technology and quality instruction when it is convenient for them. 

However our broad range of graduate programs are delivered, they all are designed to meet your needs and share common features:

  • Quality: Quality programs start with quality faculty. All of our graduate faculty are evaluated regularly and must demonstrate a commitment to scholarship and quality instruction.
  • Flexibility: Our courses are scheduled to meet the needs of professionals.
  • Affordability: Our graduate tuition is competitive with other institutions in the Commonwealth of Kentucky and is significantly less than many online programs offered by private and for-profit institutions

Take some time to explore this site to see which of our graduate programs is right for you. If you have any questions, please contact us and let us know. When you are ready, apply online to take the first step with no application fees for Spring and Summer '22 graduate applications.  Now is a great time to become a Colonel!  #EKUeverywhere
