School of Continuing Studies

We're not your traditional adult education program. You can stay at your job and finish your degree on an evening, accelerated timeline. Dedicated professors expose you to new ideas and challenge your thinking. You'll grow in ways you didn't expect. And leave feeling equipped for success.
