A graduate degree may be the ticket to a better job, a bigger paycheck or a leadership position in your chosen field.

But can you afford to spend the time and money it takes to further your education?

California University will highlight its flexible, affordable master’s degree, certification and post-graduate certificate programs at an open house from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Dec. 10 at the Cal U Southpointe Center in Canonsburg, Pa.

Keynote speaker Dr. Charles P. Nemeth, chair of the Professional Studies Department, will present “You Can Afford Graduate School.” His talk will explain how graduate assistantships, scholarships and financial aid can reduce the cost of earning an advanced degree.

Program directors will be on hand to discuss both Cal U’s traditional master’s degree programs and its Internet-based Global Online offerings, which permit students to complete their assignments online at anytime, from anywhere in the world.

Cal U offers more than 30 master’s degree programs in fields that include business administration, education, nursing, counseling, athletic training, sport management, legal studies, exercise science, psychology, social work, applied criminology, and STEM education.

Certificate programs provide specialized training in areas such as sports counseling, autism spectrum disorders, Arabic language and culture, and Spanish for law enforcement and business.

The Graduate School also offers teacher certification in a variety of disciplines, as well as principal’s certification or a superintendent letter of eligibility.
