The Graduate Center: Opening Doors to Graduate Study
The Graduate Center can open the door to graduate study for you at Seattle Pacific University. You’ll find information about all 45 of SPU’s graduate programs — from open house events to application resources. Or just come in for a friendly conversation to answer your questions. The Graduate Center is your first step on the way to enrolling in any graduate program SPU offers — master’s, doctoral, certificate, or dual degree.
Why the Graduate Center?
Because your needs are specific to fit your career, our graduate programs are not “one size fits all.” That’s why we’ve created a single resource center where you can come for specific program information, guidance through the admissions process, and other relevant help to get you going on this journey. After all, applying to a graduate program may seem daunting, but it doesn't need to be.
And since you’re busy in your life and career, we’ll help smooth out any rough spots and get you where you need to go. That’s what we’re here for.
What Would You Like to Study?
At SPU, you may choose from 45 distinct graduate programs.

Why I Teach
Nyaradzo Mvududu, Associate Professor of Education
“I teach at SPU because here I do not have to compartmentalize my faith and my academic career. I view statistics as a tool we can use to understand God’s creation and our work in whatever field as we go about our day-to-day activities.”
