About the Graduate Catalog 

Welcome to the Graduate Catalog.  This catalog contains comprehensive information about Widener University’s programs for students obtaining certificates, masters and doctoral degrees. This catalog includes every graduate academic program and the requirements for earning a degree. Each program lists requirements, curriculum sequences and general information about each program.  Brief descriptions of all courses are listed by department, as well as programs of study for each program currently offered, including specializations, concentrations and dual degrees.   

What Catalog should I use?

  • The requirements specified in each Catalog apply to students who began their studies at Widener University during the academic year listed on the Catalog, and who remain in continuous enrollment until they graduate.
  • Academic program requirements may change at University discretion.  Students will be notified of any changes by their academic department or program, and will be advised of their options based on those changes.
  • Students unsure of which catalog to use should consult with their Academic Advisor.
  • The Catalog and University web site does not take the place of academic advising!  Students must meet with their advisor regularly to ensure that they are meeting current program and major requirements for completion and graduation
