Grad Schools

Your strong communication, writing and reasoning skills, mastered while at Bethel, put you ahead of the pack in graduate school.

Finding your niche in one of our numerous areas of study or by creating your own iMajor means you’ll have the depth of classroom knowledge to prepare you to focus your studies in graduate school.

Combined with the breadth of knowledge you’ll have through exploration in our Common Ground curriculum and the emphasis on hands-on learning means you’ll also have the critical thinking skills and real-world experience to set you apart from other applicants.

Your combination of educational experiences – including peace, justice and conflict studies  – prepares you to dive deeper in the programs at prestigious graduate school programs across the country.
