Graduate School: Welcome
Find your future at the University of Portland Graduate School. For more than half a century, the University of Portland has helped students take the next step - in their careers, in their thinking, in their lives. Our nationally accredited graduate programs combine dedicated faculty and state-of-the art facilities to create an environment where you'll be challenged to grow. Along the way, you'll be supported by a community committed to your success.
At the University of Portland, we teach the whole person, preparing you to make critical decisions with insight and high ethical standards. Our selective admissions process means the student-teacher ratio is low, so you'll get to know your professors personally. Close partnerships between faculty and graduate students are the cornerstone of the University of Portland experience. At UP, you're not a number.
The University of Portland understands the challenges of balancing a career with graduate study, and has created a flexible environment that helps you reach your goals, from off-campus programs to ample parking and convenient meals for evening classes.
The vibrant city of Portland, Oregon, is woven into the life of the University. Thriving professional communities in the metropolitan area offer opportunities to develop your professional network and explore career possibilities through internships. And with lectures, symposia, concerts, and plays happening nightly on campus, the University itself provides multiple ways to expand your horizons.
We offer twelve different graduate programs in seven academic areas through the College of Arts and Sciences departments of Communication Studies, Drama and Theology, the Pamplin School of Business Administration, the Shiley School of Engineering and the Schools of Education and Nursing.
