College of Professional Studies opens fast-track programs to veterans

Posted: 10/30/2012
Gregory Buckley, interim dean of the College of Professional Studies, announced today that the Bachelor of Professional Studies adult fast-track degree program is now an option available to all honorably discharged veterans who are 24 years of age or younger.

Through the program, veterans can earn the Bachelor of Professional Studies or Bachelor of Liberal Studies degree.

“Studies have consistently shown that these individuals, because of their service experience, are much better served by adult programs, and relate better to adult learners, than they do to traditional-aged students and pedagogies,” said Buckley. “The College of Professional Studies has a long history of serving veterans, and we are pleased and honored to continue to do so with this new policy.”
