Doctoral Studies

As a St. Cloud State doctoral student, you'll have access to a world-class degree program, excellent facilities and exemplary faculty at a price that won’t burden you with excessive debt.

Our dedicated professors make student learning their top priority. Our professors are accomplished professionals with hands-on experience in the field.

We're here to support you in your pursuit of a doctoral degree in any way we can. In addition to scholarships and other financial aid opportunities, we also offer graduate assistantships to students to help cover the costs of their tuition in exchange for their employment.

Our practitioner-focused curriculum uses a weekend format for working professionals meeting six weekends a semester (Friday evening and Saturday classes).

Students build a camaraderie with their cohort which fosters a learning community and valuable professional network after graduation.

Your dissertation research project will explore a topic you are passionate about and is appropriate for your field.
