The Master of Science in First-Year Studies (MSFYS) is a fully online graduate program that encompasses the theory and study of factors affecting the initial college experience, including foundations of students' transitional experiences and research on various programs that promote a successful transition. Grounded in decades of research, this is the only graduate degree program dedicated to the discipline of first-year studies.

Through an innovative curriculum, students in the MSFYS graduate program develop skills and knowledge needed to create and manage curricular and co-curricular programs, and engage in research that extends the collective understanding of first-year and transition studies. The MSFYS program is designed for anyone interested in working with or teaching first-year college students, including residence hall directors, academic advisors, teaching staff, faculty, and administrators.
