Graduate Studies is a large part of the university. At any given time approximately one quarter of the students attending CSUSB already have bachelor's degrees and are earning certificates, credentials, master's degrees, or are pursuing knowledge for their own pleasure. Graduate Studies offers varied advanced courses of study, including professional programs leading to the world of work, and academic master's degrees preparing the student for the Ph.D. as well as advanced professional degrees, such as medicine and law. Nationally recognized and nationally accredited programs are among those offered by Graduate Studies.
Most classes are offered at convenient hours for working students. Financial assistance, research and travel funds are available, with some special financial aid programs aimed at creating a more diverse university faculty. The Office of the Dean of Graduate Studies encourages graduate education and works to create programs of quality that respond to the needs of students and of the university's service area.
