Welcome to Cleveland State University

As president of Cleveland State University (CSU), I am so pleased you are interested in our online degree programs in law, nursing or social work. We believe in experiential learning, an educational strategy that provides real-world opportunities to immerse yourself in your field and apply your growing knowledge. Experiential learning combines civic involvement with academic coursework in a way that benefits you and the community. From new online programs and updated curricula to experiential learning and faculty guidance, everything we do at CSU is designed to support your success in these programs.


The CSU College of Law’s Online Juris Doctor (J.D.) program is one of the few accredited online J.D. programs in the country. Ours is a nationally ranked, rigorous program that provides integrated experiential learning opportunities that put classroom theory into practice. You can achieve your J.D. in just over three years.


Our online Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program offers six specialized tracks to advance your career: Family Nurse Practitioner, Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, Nursing Education, Forensic Nursing, Clinical Nurse Leader, Specialized Populations. These clinical and non-clinical nursing degrees can be completed in two years or less. The Family Nurse Practitioner and Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner tracks are also offered as Post-Graduate Certificate Courses for those who already hold a master’s degree.

Social Work

Our online Master of Social Work (MSW) program offers specializations in clinical and advanced generalist practice. Career changers can follow the traditional track and achieve their MSW on a part-time or full-time basis. If you’re a practicing social worker looking to earn your master’s degree, our advanced standing program is the shortest in Ohio and requires only 30 credits.
Choosing the right higher education institution to advance your career is a big decision. We hope you will consider Cleveland State University, as we would be delighted to be a part of your educational journey.
