The School of Professional Studies is comprised of twelve academic departments and four centers. Our strong emphasis on both academics and practical experience attracts students who are new to academics, continuing students searching for a career-oriented education path, or professionals desiring an upgrade in their skills.
Graduates from the School of Professional Studies enjoy careers in diverse settings, as:
- hotel and restaurant managers,
- meeting planners,
- police and parole officers,
- mental health counselors,
- recreational therapists,
- sport managers,
- technical writers,
- engineering design
...to name just a few.
Not only do students graduate with employer-identified skills specific to their chosen career, they receive a broad educational background that enables them to pursue post-graduate studies. Opportunities for advanced study are abundant in the fields of law, communications, education, allied health professions, mental health fields, and many other graduate programs.
Faculty have expertise in their field, not only by virtue of their attained degree, but also from “real-world” experience. Most full-time faculty members have earned doctorate degrees. Thus, students can be assured they are receiving top-quality instruction they can put to use in their chosen field.
