About Academic Affairs

Welcome to Academic Affairs

Salem State University is committed to excellence in education, service and scholarship. 

The strategic goal of our academic programs is to advance the intellectual and personal growth of all students through a wide spectrum of learning opportunities. To realize this, we rely upon the dedication and contributions of our superb faculty, our gifted librarians and our talented staff.

Our undergraduate programs are grounded in the tradition of a strong core in the liberal arts and sciences. Additionally, we provide our students with the competencies and knowledge necessary for a variety of professional fields. Our graduate programs challenge students to meet their professional goals andto meet the intellectual, professional and credentialing needs of the region. Our school of continuing and professional studies features programs and services that recognize the competing responsibilities in adult learners' lives. Collectively, our programs prepare students to become competitive in the workforce and leaders in their professions and communities.
