School of Graduate Studies Mission
In keeping with the College’s mission, graduate education continues the goal of developing each individual’s capacity for a life of leadership and service by challenging and strengthening mind, spirit, character, and community. In addition, the School of Graduate Studies contributes to intellectual life at the College by enabling graduate students to engage in scholarly study and research and to prepare for professional work.
The College is committed to providing an intellectually rigorous education within the context of an inclusive and diverse campus; we firmly believe that diversity is essential to learning and our success as a pluralistic community. Our curriculum integrates the traditional liberal arts with selected preprofessional studies. Our faculty are passionate about teaching, value close relationships with students and are committed to the pedagogical and intellectual importance of research.
All members of our community are committed to educating the whole person through experiences within and beyond the classroom. Honoring its historical heritage from the Lutheran Church and its continuing connection with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Muhlenberg encourages, welcomes and celebrates a variety of faith traditions and spiritual perspectives.
