Completing a professional degree is a proven way to increase your potential in the workplace and to enhance your life satisfaction. At Quincy University, we understand the personal commitment you invest in your degree and the sacrifices you willingly make to reach your goals.
That's why we designed the Professional Studies program in Human Services with your needs and requirements in mind—so that "future perfect" doesn't have to mean "present tense."
The program gives students flexibility through a choice of two distinctive instructional approaches: the traditional face-to-face model or the new online program.
In the face-to-face model, accelerated courses meet one evening each week for three - four hours (or in an extended weekend format). Each semester consists of two eight-week sessions in which most students choose to complete two classes per session.
In the online program, students complete courses through asynchronous learning that fits their individual schedules, combined with online discussions that promote interaction
Students in the Professional Studies program meet the requirements of full-time status through focused and concentrated study. Whether students gather in a classroom or collaborate through online activities, expert instructors draw upon the life and professional experiences of participants to create a dynamic and supportive learning community.
