The Graduate School

Dorothy A. Boyd-Rush, Dean


James Madison University's Graduate School was established in 1954 when the Virginia Board of Education authorized Madison College to offer programs leading to the Master of Science in Education degree. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools approved these graduate programs the same year.

The Graduate School is now authorized to offer 32 major programs leading to nine master's degrees, the educational specialist degree and the psychology doctorate.
