Old Dominion University
Student enjoys a break in between classes.
At Old Dominion University, graduate students engage in small classes with dedicated faculty who are masters in their fields, recognized by peers, organizations, businesses, and industries across the country. Each of our graduate programs offer challenging courses as well as excellent research opportunities.
Learning the modern way – the ODU way – isn’t one dimensional. It sparks your imagination, taps all of your senses, and makes use of today’s technologies. It’s equal parts thought and action, knowledge and skill. You can’t know without doing or do without knowing.
It was inspiring and rewarding to be part of a community that deeply valued diversity and inclusion while offering the highest-quality education to all. Because Old Dominion University offers stellar graduate programs at a reasonable cost and various graduate assistantships to full time graduate students, I am able to complete a Master’s degree without debt and I thank Old Dominion University for enabling me to do so.

Hampton Roads is what Norfolk and the surrounding region is called. It’s the crossroads of many of the events that shaped America – the very first European settlers in the New World, the American Revolution, and the Civil War. The marks of those experiences make the city and the region a rich place to explore. Also nearby is one of America’s most popular vacation spots, Virginia Beach (20 minutes away), and three hours away is Washington, D.C., with some of the greatest museums and monuments in the world.
