Mission

The Graduate Program at the University of West Georgia provides well-qualified students with the opportunity to engage in research, advanced study, creative activities, and personal development to become successful teachers, scholars, and practitioners in their chosen professions.  To that end, the Graduate School awards Master’s, Educational Specialist and Doctoral degrees in selected programs.  Graduate programs result in the creation of new knowledge and information and benefit undergraduate instruction through improved teaching and learning.  As our general mission statement says, the University aspires to preeminence in providing educational excellence in a personal environment through an intellectually stimulating and supportive community for its students, faculty, and staff.
