Graduate Studies at Winona State

Graduate Students at Winona State

Graduate students are important members of our “community of learners.” Each of you brings a unique academic, personal, and cultural perspective that enriches our university.

While you are pursuing your education, we want to help you make the most of all that the university, Winona, and Rochester have to offer. Winona State is truly a beautiful place to live and work.
