These graduate programs balance a commitment to the liberal arts with the practical concerns of achieving gainful employment.

Our University Centers of Excellence include the Center for the Arts, the Institute for Global Understanding, the Monmouth Polling Institute, and the Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music, connecting Monmouth to the community and the world. Our academic programs, along with numerous co-curricular activities, clubs, and organizations provide our students with unique educational opportunities.

Monmouth University was founded at the height of the Great Depression to provide local students with opportunities for educational studies unavailable in their communities. Today, nearly a century later, the McMurray School of Humanities and Social Sciences is committed to providing students from all over the globe with an outstanding education in a supportive and welcoming environment.
