Graduate Admissions

Learn More. Accomplish More.

NOTE: Wheelock College has reached an agreement to merge with Boston University. Please note that the graduate application requirements may change. The College is working with BU to determine its revised academic program portfolio in the new Wheelock College of Education and Human Development.

We will be in contact with all prospective students and applicants as the merger discussions between our two institutions continue and more details are available. Information will also be available at as developments warrant.

Please contact Graduate Admissions at 617-879-1114 or with any additional questions or to speak with an admissions counselor. We look forward to working with you in the coming weeks and months.

Excellent Programs and Flexible Schedules

Since 1955, Wheelock College has been providing an exceptional graduate education to people from around the U.S. and around the globe.

Our students seek to improve the lives of children and families-and society, in general-by becoming successful practitioners, leaders, and advocates in fields such as Child Life, Family Studies, Social Work, Education, and Nonprofit Leadership.

At the graduate level, we offer degree programs, certificates, and professional development courses, as well as various continuing education institutes throughout the year. This variety of offerings enables us to support the broad array of academic goals and professional development needs of our students.

Evening and weekend courses enable students to schedule courses as their personal and professional schedules allow. Students engage in the classroom and in field experiences with experts and advocates from multiple fields of study. This close collaboration in combining theory and scholarship with real-world research and practice enable our students to expand their horizons, embrace best practices, and tailor their learning experience to their professional goals.
