Dual Degree Program

One of the big ideas that has taken root at GSU is our Dual Degree Program.
GSU and area community colleges have formed a great partnership.

Bachelor's Degree Programs

If you have finished your first two years at another university or your associate’s degree or – starting in 2014 – are beginning your college career as a freshman or even want to launch a new career.

Master's Degree Programs

Each of our four colleges offers master’s degrees for students building on their bachelor’s degree or for professionals advancing in their fields.

Doctoral Programs

If you are aiming at the top of your profession in Education or Health & Human Services, GSU offers programs that attract candidates from across the nation and the globe.

Certification Programs

We offer both undergraduate and graduate level certificate programs in the fields of Education, Health & Human services, Law Enforcement and the sciences – including biochemistry and biotechnology.

Online & Distance Learning

In addition to more than 120 online classes each semester, Governors State University offers fully online degrees at the Bachelor, Master, and Doctoral level.

School of Extended Learning

One of the big ideas that we have been pursuing since GSU was founded more than 40 years ago is to make education accessible.
