We welcome you to The Graduate School at Montclair State University and enthusiastically support your pursuit of advanced study at our institution. Since Montclair State initially offered graduate education as the first of the state colleges to be approved for advanced preparation of students, we have evolved, through this tradition of excellence, to provide more than 100 degree, certificate and certification programs to satisfy your educational and professional needs. We have recently been designated as an R2 – Doctoral University with High Research Activity, a testament to the cutting-edge research that our faculty and staff are producing.

We will be recruiting at the October 5, 2021 Virtual Teacher Recruitment Fair, and invite you to visit our representatives.



Montclair State University is an inclusive, richly diverse community that fosters mutual respect, tolerance, and understanding among all students and employees. We embrace our differences, knowing that everyone in our multi-cultural community benefits by learning, living, working, studying, and getting to know each other.  Our students have equal access to all campus benefits and services – regardless of race, color, religion, national origin or ancestry, gender identification, age, marital status, sexual orientation, disabilities or other non-academic criteria.



The Graduate School offers approximately 200 graduate assistantships for first-time master’s and doctoral degree seeking graduate students who are interested in an opportunity to gain an academic experience that directly complements the student’s degree program curriculum. All assistantships are diverse in nature and encompass a wide variety of responsibilities and duties while allowing students to also achieve their academic goals. Assistantships will offer opportunities to work with faculty on research, assist faculty with instructional support, and/or be related to the student’s clinical or field work.
