St. Scholastica offers a variety of graduate degree and professional certificate programs in healthcare, nursing, management, technology, education and social work. These degree programs are nationally recognized and are taught by accomplished leaders in their respective fields. Paired with St. Scholastica's extended campus locations and numerous delivery formats, our graduate programs are designed to help students advance their education, career and contribution to their profession. Along with experiencing a high-quality education, students will have regular access and interaction with individualized advising and student support, faculty leaders, strong alumni connections and professional networking opportunities.


The Stender School of Business and Technology combines an academic emphasis on liberal arts with experiential learning to create global leaders with strong professional skills who act with integrity and a strong sense of social responsibility.

The School of Education programs foster high academic standards, technological literacy, collaborative partnerships, and a diverse learner perspective. Licensure programs are standards based, designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills and dispositions characteristic of highly qualified educational professionals.

The School of Arts and Letters is the liberal arts hub of the campus — offering over 20 different programs that are every bit as diverse as the students who take them. Whether it's history, communications, theology or political science, the education will include a level of hands-on experience that will give students an advantage in their field.

The School of Health Sciences is an interprofessional school featuring seven professional studies departments: Athletic Training, Exercise Physiology, , Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant Studies and Social Work. Together, these departments offer a wide range of bachelor's and master's degrees as well as the Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. These departments build upon the College's core liberal arts education to prepare graduates for practice in their chosen healthcare profession.

The School of Nursing programs respond to the health care needs of both rural and urban areas, especially underserved populations, and residents with mental health needs.  The Doctor of Nursing Practice is offered as a Bachelor's to DNP option for baccalaureate-prepared nurses and as a post-graduate option for current advanced practice nurses. We also offer a Post-Graduate APRN Certificate Program option.
