Graduation Week Activities for the College of Humanities and Social Sciences

Congratulations, Classes of 2017-2018!

If you are graduating in December 2017, you are invited to the University's Winter Graduation ceremony. You will join your fellow graduates as you each walk across the stage and are recognized by name.

In the spring, the college hosts two ceremonies for our graduating students in addition to Mason's University Commencement: 

  • A celebration for students receiving degrees in the humanities or interdisciplinary programs
  • A celebration for students receiving degrees in the social sciences

Both ceremonies take place in the EagleBank Arena (formerly Patriot Center). No tickets are required.

During the degree celebrations, the names of graduating students are read as they cross the stage. Students are congratulated by the dean and department chair and have their pictures taken by a professional photographer.

See the links in the sidebar to learn more about each of these events.

See below to learn:

  • which degree celebration you should attend
  • what participating students and attending faculty need to know
  • how to request accommodations for those with disabilities
  • how to get to campus, where to park, what hotels are nearby

We look forward to seeing all of our graduates and their families and friends at our upcoming celebrations!
