Everyone who visits the campus of Appalachian State University immediately notices something special about the campus, the students, the faculty, and staff. We have the facilities, resources, and opportunities often associated with larger schools, while maintaining the sense of community usually expected of smaller schools... the best of both worlds! This is a university where graduate students are valued as teachers, scholars, and students, and where everyone is welcomed to be part of the "Appalachian Family." At Appalachian State University, Masters’ Matter!
