The School of Graduate Studies (SGS) offers master's degrees in Transformative Leadership (MSTL) and Integrated Environmental Science (MSIES), Counseling Psychology and Criminal Justice Administration and for non-degree status students and B-CU graduating seniors, we offer a range of graduate elective courses.

The faculty in the School of Graduate Studies is highly attuned to meeting the needs of diverse students, to providing individualized attention, and to ensuring that each student has a quality educational experience that will enhance career and life. Instruction is on-line, face to face, and can be tailored in its delivery to meet the needs of students individually and in groups. Our programs and courses are grounded in practice and application, so that learning is useful for students' present and future career pursuits. In addition, the curriculum and activities are well- conceived, rigorous, and challenging, offering students the opportunity for a transformative educational experience that will, we believe, help them enjoy fuller, more meaningful lives and contribute more powerfully to their organizations and to society.
