You Didn't Come This Far to Only Come This Far

Whether you're fresh out of college, looking to change careers, or ready for a promotion in your current job, Jacksonville State University has the right graduate degree for you.

Completing a graduate degree gives you the advanced, cutting edge knowledge needed to excel in your chosen field, while also increasing your earning potential. According to a 2015 study by the Social Security Administration, "Men with graduate degrees earn $1.5 million more in median lifetime earnings than high school graduates, and women with graduate degrees earn $1.1 million more."

At JSU, you can choose from eleven different degrees with over seventy majors at the Master's, Education Specialist, or Doctoral levels. We also offer several Graduate Certificates, which give you advanced credentials after completing only five classes.
