The following article, originally published on our blog in Spring 2016, highlights the benefits of enrolling in a degree completion program. The School of Professional Studies is currently accepting applications for the Spring I (January 11) and Spring II (March 3) sessions, and will soon be accepting applications for Fall 2017.
If someone were looking to complete his or her bachelor’s degree, it seems only logical that he or she would seek out a program specifically designed to help with this process. Yet many prospective students are not even aware that such an option exists, or may question he authenticity of a non-traditional program.
Degree completion programs at non-profit schools provide the same level of difficulty, the same calibre of instructors, and the same access to resources as traditional degree programs. The difference lies in the scheduling of the courses, the cohort demographics - and in some cases - the method of delivery. As with traditional courses of study, degree completion programs can offer a credential in a singular discipline, such as psychology, or can be interdisciplinary, such as a Bachelor of Pofessional Studies.
The College of Charleston School of Professional Studies (SPS) offers a degree completion option in its Bachelor of Professional Studies (BPS) program: a course of study designed to help non-traditional students achieve a healthy school/life balance.
