The world is getting smaller every day.

Global commerce is big business in Mississippi. Last year, according to the Mississippi World Trade Center, Mississippi companies exported $11 billion in goods overseas. Dozens of companies in the Magnolia State have international offices, and every year more and more international corporations are setting up operations here.

The Master's of Science in Global commerce is ideal for an individual who works for a multinational firm and has to collaborate with global partners. With two areas of concentration, students can choose between a Digital Marketing concentration or a Information and Communications Technology concentration.

Students entering the program choose a country or region of focus, adding to a Regional Studies Portfolio through the four semester program. Upon completion of the program, our students have a unique mastery of their region of focus.


Building upon MUW’s rich tradition of preparing teacher candidates for the profession, the Graduate Programs in Education offer options for career teachers to expand and improve their expertise in the field – differentiating instruction, serving gifted populations, expanding reading and literacy, and leading schools.  The college also offers an alternate path to becoming a teacher through the Master of Arts in Teaching.

Graduates of these programs are consistently recognized for their professionalism and excellence in teaching. All MUW programs in education are fully accredited through the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education.

The Masters of Science in Health Education  graduates work in communities, schools, healthcare settings, and government agencies to improve the quality of health.  Graduates are eligible to take the Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) Exam.

MUW's Graduate Programs in Education are fully accredited.

The Master of Fine Arts program at MUW is offered in partnership with the Accademia dell'Arte in Arezzo in Italy's Tuscany region. It is the culmination of research and experimentation with diverse yet interrelated European performance trends broadly defined as Physical Theatre.

The school has recently developed a 200-square-meter facility in the historic center of Arezzo, complementing the Villa Godiola - the Accademia's main campus - a short distance from the city walls.

The program brings together some of the most innovative approaches currently available in Europe. Rooted in the spirit of the Commedia dell'arte, the ethos of the actor-creator, the curriculum provides a high level of technical training for actors, while fully preparing them to devise and create their own performance style. It is contextualized by the ongoing study of history, aesthetics and social theory.

The ultimate goal of the program is to launch students into the world as confident, creative and autonomous artists with a strongly developed aesthetic sensibility that unites the wonder of performance with a genuine search for human meaning.


MUW offers three clinical tracks that lead to your eligibility to sit for national board certification either as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), a Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (GNP) or a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP).

Students also have an option to pursue two post-master certificate options:

  • One for individuals who are not nurse practitioners, but hold a Master of Science in Nursing degree (the MSN-RN option).
  • One for nurse practitioners who hold a Master of Science in Nursing degree, but are nationally certified in another specialty (the MSN-NP option).

Program Details

  • Graduate Nursing programs are 12 months long and include 39 graduate credit hours required for a master's degree.
