About the School

Be Real World Ready

Whether you are looking to advance your career or enter a new field, Philadelphia University's School of Continuing and Professional Studies is uniquely prepared to help you reach your goals.

Continuing your education is one of the most rewarding things you can do for yourself and your future. At the School of Continuing and Professional Studies, we know how different an adult learning experience can be, and have the structure to help you succeed, even if you have had challenges in the past.

Supportive faculty and staff understand what it is like to return to school, and have the experience to help you balance obligations, take advantage of new opportunities, and redefine your success. With three convenient locations, excellent resources and accelerated terms, earning a degree or broadening your horizons through short courses or certifications has never been so accessible.

From the very first interview, I realized that the School of Continuing and Professional Studies was the place for me. Their Accelerated B.S. Degree Program has small class sizes, flexible schedules and a very supportive staff. I gained a long-sought-after degree and, most of all, I met like-minded, goal-focused individuals with whom I have forged connections that will last a lifetime.

PhilaU's School of Continuing and Professional Studies allowed me to graduate in half the time that a four-year institution would have demanded. They were willing and able to work with me so that I could transfer in most of my previous work. I also received an academic scholarship based on my performance at a local community college. The top benefit was the connections that I made - I had professors offer for me to shadow at their workplace and connect me with their colleagues.

I was nervous about returning to school, however the School of Continuing and Professional Studies’ Bucks County Campus was exceptionally convenient and the classes were easy to integrate into my busy schedule. The Accelerated B.S. Degree Program provided me with valuable group projects, opportunities for practical application of work experiences and many new friends and business contacts. After just two and a half years, I had an incredible sense of accomplishment and a newly completed degree.”

Being a stay-at-home mom for 10 years and wanting to have a sense of self-actualization fueled my perseverance to go back to school. One of the top benefits of the program is having professors who have been where I am-they can relate to the lifestyle of being an adult learner and that makes all the difference. They make you feel like equals, as we are all on this lifelong learning journey together.

I am fortunate to be enrolled in the innovative Doctoral program in Strategic Leadership at Philadelphia University—graduates will be in high demand as experts in the application of integrated systems and leadership practices. We will have sought after experience in the theory, practice, pain, and glory of great leadership. I look forward to the challenge of bringing this experience as a leader to my work and to my great clients.
