Graduate Studies 

The Office of Graduate Studies partners with Graduate Program Advisors to provide support to students in all of Sonoma State's master's degree programs. Graduate Studies provides students with guidance on navigating important deadlines and polices, and suppports the final steps of degree completion through thesis review.  

We encourage graduate students to engage in all that Sonoma State has to offer. Our department hosts events every semester to participate in, from fall's New Graduate Student Orientation, to regular semester mixers for graduate students. Graduate Students will get the most out of the experience by utilizing SSU's world-class Library, Writing CenterRecreation Center, and numerous campus events. Be sure to check out the Seawolf calendar to stay informed.
