Graduate Study Online

Hand on computer keyboard (iStockphoto.com)Not everyone has the opportunity to attend graduate school in a traditional manner. For some, the college’s online programs may be the answer.

Two online programs are offered in community and economic development (CEDEV) for professionals seeking to expand their knowledge and skills and for those interested in a new career in community and economic development.

For some students, the 15-credit postbaccalaureate certificate program in community and economic development is the right way to ease back into academic life. It introduces key concepts and practical strategies useful to those who are new to the field and those who have experience working with communities or development-related institutions. The credits can be applied to the master of professional studies in community and economic development.

For students seeking a master’s degree, the professional studies in community and economic development program explores theoretical concepts and their practical application in the real world.

Online education in the college removes geographic barriers, with CEDEV students logging on from Afghanistan, Panama, Canada, California, Florida, and other locations. With rolling admissions, students can apply and start their study almost anytime during the year, making it much easier for those balancing their education along with work and family.
