As an adult learner, you are part of the fastest-growing segment in higher education today. Adults everywhere have discovered that lifelong learning is the key to continued career success. By earning a degree or certificate from the School of Professional and Continuing Studies, you will not only grow intellectually, but will also take control of your future.

We offer a wide range of programs to help you reach your goals, including a low-residency Master of Arts in Conflict Resolution and two bachelor's degree completion programs, the Bachelor of Arts in Legal Studies and the Bachelor of Arts in Human Services, with courses offered online and in the evenings.
