On behalf of our graduate faculty, I am pleased to know of your interest in graduate study at our university. I am especially proud of the growing list of California State University, Fresno programs directed specifically toward our graduate students. Our website highlights some of these programs, along with other information significant to your understanding of our campus facilities and resources.

The decision to pursue graduate studies is extremely important. Nationally, each year some 480,000 students complete the master's degree to provide themselves with additional professional advancement and growth. Another 50,000 seek graduate studies at the doctoral level. In a world where an advanced education is increasingly critical in the arts, the sciences, government, industry, and the social services, an investment in graduate school can make a vital difference to your future. California State University, Fresno is committed to helping its students achieve this professional edge.

Please accept this invitation to find out even more about us, and if possible visit our campus to discover how our university's graduate programs can best serve you.
