Mason, in close proximity to Washington, D.C., immerses students in a welcoming environment, providing a transformational learning experience that helps them grow as individuals, scholars and professionals.

At the graduate level, we provide graduate students with the advanced knowledge and skills that are critical for success in a variety of professional sectors.

Beyond their academic work, many partnering offices view graduate study as a well-rounded life experience, including personal growth and development.

Your journey will provide many opportunities to enrich your lives.
