UMass Dartmouth offers master's degrees in 26 programs/options.
Some programs/options emphasize research, while others emphasize
the preparation of students for professional practice. All master's
programs have some required capstone experience through which students
must demonstrate mastery of subject material at a high level beyond
their undergraduate degree.
Many of our master's students go on to pursue doctoral
degrees, either at UMass Dartmouth or elsewhere. Others leverage
their master's degree to find immediate employment, to change careers,
or to advance within their current career.
Our location in the state's southeastern coast gives
UMass Dartmouth's graduate programs a distinctive advantage. For
some disciplines, nearby Buzzards Bay and the Atlantic Ocean constitute
unparalleled laboratories for study and research. For others, the
University's library archival holdings, art studio space, and business/engineering/
science incubator facilities are paramount. For all, the region's
rich history, truly diverse populace, and blossoming cultural scene
serve well our students' interests, academic and otherwise.
