WU offers regularly scheduled graduation ceremonies to help you celebrate the completion of your master’s degree. Participation is voluntary.
All graduation ceremonies for master’s students are held twice a year in Ceremonial Hall 1 in the LC building (Library & Learning Center).Each individual program has a ceremony for its own graduates, to help keep the proceedings personal and intimate. You are very welcome to bring your friends, family, and guests to the ceremony.
Music is provided by the WU Choir or the WU String Quartet.
