The program enables students to complete their degree without sacrificing their professional and personal lives and allows them to leverage all forms of prior learning including transfer credits and assessed learning acquired from professional, military, and life experiences. The program is offered entirely online with six start dates throughout the year in accelerated, 8-week sessions.

    Graduates of the Professional Studies undergraduate program will be prepared for the 21st century workplace, regardless of their position. The program’s carefully constructed curriculum aligns well with most of the career readiness competencies identified by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), such as critical thinking, problem solving, oral and written communication, teamwork, collaboration, leadership, and ethics.
