A HISTORY OF DELIVERING QUALITY EDUCATION TO ADULT LEARNERS.

Fr. Hendrickson

In recent years, there have been many colleges and universities all over the country attempting to create programs and services for adults. But the College of Professional Studies at Creighton University is no newcomer to educating adult learners like you. We’ve been doing it since 1983.

Once known as University College, we changed our name to the College of Professional Studies to more fittingly capture our innovative approach to providing lifelong learning opportunities—the same innovative approach to education that Creighton University has been known for since its founding in 1878.

Because we’ve been educating adults for more than 30 years, we know the challenges you face when you return to the classroom. We know you’re likely juggling other commitments—to your career, your family and your community. That’s why we created flexible learning options—from online degree programs to flex courses.

We’ve also made sure the student resources are in place, such as academic advising, to help you succeed. And we have organizations just for you, like the Non-Traditional Students Union, tutoring, the writing center and Alpha Sigma Lambda, the national honor society for undergraduate adult learners.
