Graduate Costs

In addition to greater future earnings, a master’s degree can help you advance your career, work on exciting research opportunities, and update your knowledge of current standards and practices in your field. An advanced degree can also be beneficial if you want to change careers or focus on a different area of specialization within your discipline.

No matter your industry—from education to healthcare to business—getting a master’s degree can lead to increased earnings and career advancement. However, among other factors—such as time to completion, academic reputation and balance in your life—the cost of a degree is often the biggest concern on prospective graduates’ minds.

At Concordia University, Nebraska, we are committed to providing you with a high-quality graduate degree that is affordable and hassle-free. Ultimately, obtaining your master’s degree is a worthy investment of your time, resources and finances.
