Take control of your career by earning your master’s degree from the University of Arkansas – Fort Smith. Our programs are tailored to meet the demands of today’s professionals with online and hybrid options and advanced instruction so students are ready to start high-paying careers the day they graduate. And at UAFS, students who live in bordering states — like Oklahoma or Texas — pay in-state tuition, making our graduate programs some of the most affordable in the region.


If you earned your four-year degree from UAFS, and enroll as a full-time graduate student, you may be eligible to receive up to $2,000 through the Lion Loyalty Scholarship program. Be sure to ask for details!


Whether you’re working toward a promotion, exploring a new career, or looking to change the world, a graduate degree from UAFS will help you achieve more than you ever thought possible.
