The Office of Graduate Studies partners with Graduate Program Coordinators to provide support to students in all of Sonoma State's master's degree programs. Graduate Studies provides students with guidance on navigating important deadlines and polices, and supports the final steps of degree completion (see Academic Requirement Report, GSO2 form) and thesis review.  

We encourage graduate students to engage in all that Sonoma State has to offer. Our office hosts events every semester, from Fall's New Graduate Student Orientation to semester mixers for graduate students.

Graduate Students will get the most out of their experience by utilizing SSU's world-class library, Writing Center, and Recreation Center, and by attending any of the numerous campus events. The Seawolf calendar to is a great way to stay informed.
