Graduate Schools Course Catalogs

Here are the course catalog pages for Simmons graduate programs:


Please note: Simmons College and its Graduate Schools make every effort to ensure that the information contained in their catalogs is accurate and complete. Occasionally, however, changes are made and mistakes are discovered after the catalog has been placed online. Degree requirements may also change because of changes in curriculum, accreditation standards or legal requirements.

If you have questions about a program, especially with regard to the course or training requirements for a particular degree, we encourage you to be in contact with the Dean of the School, the director of the program, or the chairman of the relevant department for definitive information.
