Admission & Aid
The decision to pursue advanced study is an important one. We are proud of our outstanding programs in leadership, education, counseling, and therapy and we can't wait to share them with you. Our office is here to support you as you explore. Let's get started.
Why Choose SOLES?
The School of Leadership and Education Sciences at the University of San Diego is a special place.
Just take a walk through Mother Rosalie Hill Hall, watch one of our students in action at practicum or student teaching, or drop in to office hours with one of our faculty, and you'll feel it.
Maybe it has to do with the specialized, individual attention each faculty and staff member gives to our students, or our small, discussion-based classes.
Perhaps it's our community partners - community agencies, schools, nonprofit organizations and others who help our students grow through practica, internships, student teaching and applied projects.
Our focus on global learning, and the international experiences that all of our master's and doctoral students partake in, may have something to do with it.
Whatever it is, our community of students, alumni, faculty and staff is one you just can't overlook. Our graduate students include working professionals, returning students, future leaders fresh out of their bachelor's degrees, career-changers, researchers, educators, administrators, business leaders, and changemakers. They are the movers and shakers from across the country and around the world. We invite you to join us.
