Wow... that's a lot of reasons to finish your degree. On second thought, that may be too many reasons, and is sounding more and more like a book.
You’ve decided to apply for a graduate program at Fitchburg State University. Now it’s time to ask for recommendations, but you’ve been out of school for a while so who do you ask? Here’s a list of people we suggest you start asking:
Ok you've graduated. Now what do you do? Read our helpful hints to get started on your plan!
Continue learning. Take a continuing education class.
You can further your studies by taking a short course which is not necessarily part of what you majored in at college. For example, if you were a history major but want to pursue a different field, like business or computer science, taking classes gives you a foundation to begin looking for entry-level jobs in that field.
Are you interested in ethics and theoretical approaches to communications within society? The new graduate course in the M.S. Applied Communication program, Communication Ethics, challenges students to consider the ethical and legal implications of real-world issues in the field of communication, and will be offered online through the School of Graduate, Online and Continuing Education this summer, 7/12/21 through 8/29/21.
Have you ever thought about why some individuals and groups are more privileged than others or what you can do to help prevent domestic violence? You are invited to explore these and other related questions in the Introduction to Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies three credit course being offered online through Graduate and Continuing Education (GCE) during the upcoming Summer Session A, 5/17/21 through 7/04/21.
Have you ever thought about the impact of media technologies and media practices on our social values, or how our media habits influence technology? Dr. Kyle Moody’s Social Media Theory course encourages students to explore the relationship between technology and society, among other related issues and theories, which will be offered online through School of Graduate, Online and Continuing Education (SGOCE) during Summer Term A, 5/17/21 through 7/04/21.
That said, we offer our top five reasons to register early for your summer courses:
2020 has presented challenges for all of us. Perhaps this unusual time has given you an opportunity to think about returning to the classroom. Would you like to pursue an initial teacher’s license, to broaden your knowledge in your teaching field or to expand your scope with a new area of focus?
Fitchburg State has a multitude of programs and concentrations to meet your educational and career needs.
- More than a dozen Master of Education routes to an initial license for first-time teachers and career-changers

It’s hard to imagine that things could have been done any other way than they are now.
We forget what life was like without the internet, computers, and cell phones. How did people actually work? Well we did and somehow managed.
