A master’s degree is a distinguished academic award conferred upon those who demonstrate a level of competence and accomplishment that is substantially higher than what is expected of undergraduate students. These competencies include the ability to communicate effectively, think critically, skills to analyze complex situations, proficiency to acquire, integrate and apply knowledge, leadership skills, a capacity to recognize and deal with ethical issues according to the standards of their particular profession, and the ability to work collaboratively with others.

In consultation with faculty and administration, the ISO determines the visa and employment options for international students, scholars, visitors and employees that will permit the greatest benefit and flexibility to NAU and to the individual. International students are provided with advice and documentation necessary to maintain their legal status in the United States.
