The University of Scranton is set to host its first Graduate Open House on Wednesday, April 10. The event will take place from 5:30 to 8 p.m., and it will give attendees an opportunity to explore the variety of programs offered and learn more about graduate education while interacting with faculty, staff and alumni.

The University offers more than 30 advanced degrees with programs such as physical therapy, nurse anesthesia, health care management, clinical rehabilitation counseling and MBA in analytics and accounting being nationally ranked.

In the last few years, the University has added newer programs such as an online M.S. in cybercrime investigation and cybersecurity, a synchronous remote M.S. in speech-language pathology and a Ph.D. in accounting.

The event will begin on the fourth floor of the DeNaples Center, 900 Mulberry St, Scranton. Guests should arrive by 5:30 p.m. to check in and enjoy light refreshments with the Deans. Shortly afterward, a 6 p.m. welcome session will include explanations of the application and enrollment process. Also, an alumni success panel will share firsthand graduate school experiences and discuss its impact on their career. At 6:45 p.m., attendees will be given the opportunity to tour their desired program’s facility while interacting with faculty.

Caitlyn Hollingshead, Assistant Vice President for Graduate and International Admissions, described graduate education at Scranton and how students are guided to the next steps in their educational and professional endeavors.

“We take great pride in knowing that a graduate degree from The University of Scranton will provide you with not just better job outcomes with higher earning potential, but with a support system of faculty mentors dedicated to your future success.”

While our national recognition tells a wonderful story about the formalized success of our programs, the real differentiator is how the University approaches each student as an individual learner,” Hollingshead said.

Or, students are welcome to email for additional information on graduate education or the graduate application process.
