Wright State University’s College of Graduate Programs and Honors Studies will host a Graduate Programs Open House on Thursday, Feb. 8, for those who are thinking about building, enhancing or even changing careers. The event will be held in the Student Union Apollo Room from 4 to 6 p.m.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, a master’s degree can boost earnings by 18% more than a bachelor’s degree. A graduate certificate can increase one’s salary by 13 to 25%, according to Forbes.
Wright State offers a wide variety of advanced degrees, whether individuals are looking for a degree that is professionally based or research focused.
The open house is the perfect opportunity to meet Wright State’s nationally distinguished faculty members and learn about Wright State’s more than 150 certificate, master’s and doctoral programs with flexible options to meet student’s needs.
Some graduate programs can be completed in one year or completely online, while some graduate certificate programs require as few as three courses and can be counted toward a future graduate degree.
Students may also learn about combined degree programs that can save time and money toward both an undergraduate and a graduate degree.
The $40 graduate program application fee will be waived for those who attend the open house.
Faculty, staff and current students will be on hand from the following academic areas to share information about their degree and certificate programs, as well as answer questions:
- Engineering and Computer Science
- Health, Education and Human Services
- Liberal Arts
- Science and Mathematics
Wright State offers a mixture of class styles and times designed to fit students’ busy lives and responsibilities. Graduate students can attend part time or full time and take classes online, in-person or a combination of both.
Graduate-level certificate programs provide focused training in a specialized area. In addition, certificates are normally comprised of courses that can be used toward a degree later on and feature a simple application process.
Doctoral programs are built upon the foundation of strong graduate faculty and research productivity and are relevant to the needs of the greater Dayton area while contributing to the intellectual capacity and economic advancement of Ohio.
