Class size in TROY’s Graduate School ranges from approximately 10 to 20 students,
facilitating the formation of deeper relationships between students — and between
students and faculty.
Many of our graduate programs offer internship opportunities to give students hands-on
learning experiences. Degree fields such as nursing, counseling, education, and social
work often require licensure or certification to enter the field. Due to our specialized
accreditations and degree requirements, students may be licensed and certified in
these areas without additional coursework. Requirements vary by state.
Graduate Programs Online
For more than 50 years, TROY has been recognized as a premier public university teaching
working adults and military students.
Because of the way TROY is structured — with multiple sites located within Alabama,
the southeast and even throughout the world — students have much-needed flexibility
to attend classes and access university-based services from anywhere.
To make earning a graduate degree more accessible, TROY provides students with the
option to take many classes online or a combination of in-person and online instruction.
Students taking programs online participate in online discussions, take online assessments
and have valuable opportunities to collaborate virtually.
Another way TROY makes the process of earning a graduate degree more flexible is by
offering Fast Track graduate degree programs that require 30 to 33 semester hours and can be completed within a year.
