Graduate Education

Penn State was the first in the country to create a college with a combined emphasis on human health, development, and well being. Graduate degrees are available in eight programs:

The College of Health and Human Development also maintains a special relationship with the Penn State College of Nursing.

Our programs are part of The Graduate School, which has grown to one of the largest in America. We are committed to ensuring that all individuals regardless of age, ethnicity, gender, religious creed or other personal characteristics are afforded the opportunity to achieve their full potential as scholars and professionals. Our international enrollment reflects a strong effort  to reaching the global community.
