Message from the Dean

Welcome to the School of Graduate Studies and Research at Delaware State University. 

The School of Graduate Studies and Research supports the University’s mission by providing the infrastructural support necessary for the development and implementation of transformative, high-quality, graduate, and professional programs that prepares leaders for the complexities of the 21st century. This is achievable in collaboration with an excellent team of faculty, staff, and administrators who are dedicated to providing challenging curricula, seamless student services, and professional development unique to each area of interest. 

Aligned with DSU’s mission, DSU @Wilmington features the MBA, MPA, MSA, and MSW programs; developed with you, the adult learner in mind. Programs are geared to providing you with an excellent educational experience in preparation for gainful employment or career progression. Courses are scheduled in the evenings for working adults with the majority of courses taught by full-time faculty holding terminal degrees. With the exception of the MSW program, all programs offer rolling eight-week sessions, thus providing the opportunity to complete your studies in 12-18 months. I invite you to learn more about our excellent program offerings and discover why DSU @Wilmington is “Your Time” and “Your Place.” 

All the best,
Patrice G. Johnson, Ph.D. Dean of Graduate, Adult, and Continuing Studies
