Welcome Letter From The Dean


आपका स्वागत है


مرحبًا بكم



The Graduate School at Marquette University offers a broad array of outstanding educational opportunities, including doctoral degrees, master’s degrees and certificate programs. Graduate-level programs contribute to the vibrant intellectual community found at Marquette. Each of our programs has been designed to provide you with the educational experience in classroom, laboratory, and clinical settings that will help you meet your professional and personal goals.  Marquette’s graduate programs provide you with the opportunity to study with superb faculty who are strongly committed to their roles as teachers and as scholars. A spirit of exploration, discovery and innovation unites the work of our faculty and graduate students, whether they are probing the fundamental questions in their specific disciplines or applying new knowledge, often through novel interdisciplinary approaches, to solve some of the most challenging problems of our time.

Our diverse community of scholars is informed by the mission of Marquette University.  Founded in 1881, Marquette is a Catholic, Jesuit university with over 8,300 undergraduate and 3,400 graduate and professional students.  Graduate programs, while unique in emphasis and based on discipline-specific information and methods, are conducted in such a manner that students understand and appreciate the Jesuit/Catholic linking of faith, justice and search for truth.  Marquette's graduate programs emphasize a worldview informed by multicultural and global perspectives. Finally, students are encouraged to engage in service to their communities and to commit to the ethical practice of their profession.

In addition to the individual graduate programs, the Graduate School offers a wide range of academic support and professional development services. Among these are the Graduate Student Organization and the student-led Preparing Future Faculty and Professionals program. These organizations provide graduate students with the opportunity to interact with colleagues from across campus and offer extracurricular social and professional development opportunities.  Marquette is conveniently located near the heart of downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Located on the shore of Lake Michigan approximately 90 miles north of Chicago, Milwaukee has a metropolitan area population of 1.8 million people and offers a wide array of social, cultural, and recreational opportunities.  Known as the “City of Festivals,” Milwaukee offers ethnic and music festivals nearly every weekend from May through September.

I invite you to explore the details of our graduate programs through the links found here. The staff of the Graduate School and the faculty in the individual programs welcome your interest in Marquette University!
