Creighton University Graduate School

Creighton University was never just a place for you to earn your graduate degree. The Graduate School is where you changed, not just your future, but also your life. We invite you to renew and strengthen your ties with the School, your former classmates and your favorite professors by:

message from the dean

Welcome to the Graduate School page on the Alumni website. We hope you will bookmark this page to renew a lifelong bond with Creighton and your former classmates. 

You can experience this vital connection in many ways, from staying in touch on reunions and events, to learning about volunteer and professional opportunities, or locating a favorite professor or classmate.

If you are a new graduate, you may wish to learn about career options and opportunities for growth, or to reconnect with fellow graduates.

Over the years, you’ll want to share family news and remain up-to-date about professional opportunities. You may have a desire to grow spiritually, explore new ideas, and reach out to others who feel the same.

Our Graduate School is entering an exciting time of growth with many new programs that are being offered online in a wide range of fields. These include graduate degrees in health care ethics, bioscience management (professional science masters), and our doctoral program – the interdisciplinary Ed.D. program in leadership, and many more.

We want you to stay current with our new programs and services. For the latest edition of our Graduate School e-newsletter, please visit. Please also join friends and faculty for the Graduate School’s reunion each fall.

We are very proud of our graduates. Please stop in and see us the next time you are on campus.
