The University of the Assumption Graduate School of Education was established in 1971 with the initial course offering of Master of Arts in Education with majors in in Community Development, Educational Administration, and Guidance and Counseling.

Immediately thereafter, the school recognized the relevance and timeliness of affording the same graduate school opportunities to professionals coming from the business and economic sectors. Thus, the Graduate School of Business was organized in 1981.

In 1983, the two departments were merged into the UA Graduate School. The Department of Education, Culture and Sports (DECS) granted in 1988 the certificates of recognition for the programs Doctor of Education (Ed. D.) and Master of Arts in Education major in Teaching Filipino and in Physical Education.

In 1995, three (3) new specializations under the Master of Arts in Education degree were introduced, namely Early Childhood, Mathematics and English. To serve the needs of the government sector, the offering of the Master in Public Administration (MPA) program was granted certificate of recognition in 1997.

The periods from 2004 to 2007 brought new challenges to the Graduate School and opened doors for the enhancement of existing programs. Foremost is the implementation of the new “Rules and Regulations of Republic Act Numbered Ninety-Two and Fifty-Eight (R.A. No. 9258), known as the “Guidance and Counseling Act of 2004”. Policies in said RA paved the way for the UA Graduate School to turn the MAED in Guidance and Counseling into an independent program, thus born the Master of Arts in Guidance and Counseling (MAGC). Meanwhile, the Catholic character and aspirations of the University propelled efforts to open the Master of Arts in Theological Studies (MATS) which was granted government permit in the middle of the first semester of 2006, and was given the government recognition in 2012.

As the Apex of the University, the Graduate School consistently strives to take the lead in providing quality Catholic education to its clientele.


Inspired by the vision-mission of the University of the Assumption, the Graduate School, as the Apex of the institution, envisions itself as the cradle of God-fearing professional practitioners who are holistically equipped to serve their immediate community, the country, and the world, and could expertly assume roles of leadership.


The University of the Assumption Graduate School commits itself to provide meaningful and joyful opportunities for its students to experience total quality instruction, undertake relevant research, and render socially responsive extension service.
