School of Professional Studies
|Enrollment||1,375 students (2005)|
The School of Professional Studies (known as the School of Continuing Education from 2002-2015) offers Master of Science Degrees, Postbaccalaureate Certification of Professional Achievement, the American Language Program, Overseas Programs, Summer Session and High School Programs, and classes for non-matriculated elective course students, including the Auditing and Lifelong Learner Program.
CE traces its roots to the Division of Special Programs, Continuing Education which was established in 1995. It oversaw several nondegree programs, an overseas program, Summer Session, Summer High School Programs, the American Language Program, and a few inter-institution arrangements. In 2002 the trustees voted to establish the School of Continuing Education, placed it under the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, and gave it the authority to grant Master of Science degrees.
The majority of students are enrolled in its programs as non-degree students.
