Professional Studies (BS)

Program Description

The BS in Professional Studies is an individualized program of study available to upper class students only by referral from their advisor. The curriculum is designed to enable students who, for professional or personal reasons, are unable to complete the specific degree requirements of their declared major, including practicum or fieldwork requirements.

Students in Professional Studies are ineligible for independent studies and cannot declare minors. Any declared minors must be cancelled prior to matriculation in Professional Studies. Good academic standing and at least a 2.0 GPA are required for graduation. Students completing this program cannot be recommended for licensures by the school, and must apply on their own if they are pursuing professional licensure opportunities.
