Each program is built upon a strong liberal arts foundation, the Concordia Distinctive, that will empower you to see the interconnection of ideas, to feel compassion for others, to express yourself thoughtfully and effectively, to see the beauty in science and art, and to remain a lifelong learner who will share your gifts with the world. The graduate programs at Valparaiso extend this tradition of excellence to include a number of areas of advanced study. Our programs are deliberately limited to the kinds of graduate study that blend liberal studies and professional education.

Graduate Life and Culture at Valparaiso University
Pursuing an advanced degree requires diligence, time, and dedication, so the Graduate School takes great strides to simplify the "details" of being a student. For example, an orientation for new graduate students advises individuals how to maneuver through the system quickly and efficiently. Included in this session is information pertaining to student ID's, parking permits, library cards, and instruction on accessing the Web, email accounts, and software.

This "one-stop" approach characterizes all graduate student services and functions, which are coordinated through a single office. Ongoing workshops, seminars, and focus sessions help ensure that students' needs are continually monitored and that their likelihood of success is maximized.

But there's another side to graduate study... getting to know the faculty and your fellow students, developing a sense of identity with the program and the University, and experiencing the enjoyable aspects of learning within a community of scholars. To this end, the Graduate School and various graduate departments regularly sponsor events and activities that promote group discussion, interaction, and cohesion throughout the course of study. The student's final year is marked by a research symposium and banquet highlighting the scholarly work of graduate students and recognizing those who have achieved academic distinction.

A word about the faculty
Above all else, the dedicated faculty form the heart of our graduate programs. They are master teachers whose role is to engage students in the art and science of learning, to guide students to appreciate and challenge ideas, and to nurture them in their development as professionals. The large majority of faculty are full-time - you'll find they are committed to and enjoy teaching, are eager to discuss your ideas and thoughts, and respond to your emails and phone calls. Because teaching is their profession, they know how to do it, and they do it well.

At the same time, the faculty understand the professions for which they are preparing students. Many counsel, consult, and practice in their fields. They know the community and the region, they network with professionals locally and nationally, and they serve on advisory boards of private and non-profit groups. In short, their connections often provide gateways to students taking their first critical steps into their profession.
