Professional Studies Program

Academic Programs
Over the past 30 years, the Professional Studies Program has helped hundreds of people in the Northeast Florida area become successful. Designed for busy adults, this program delivers undergraduate degree programs that prepare you to succeed in life — wherever it takes you.

Academic program areas include:

Business Administration
The Business Administration degree program is designed to prepare graduates with the requisite knowledge, skills, and values to effectively apply various business principles and tools in an organizational setting. The program is designed to bridge the gap between theory and practical application, while examining the areas of accounting, critical thinking and decision-making, finance, business law, leadership, management, marketing, organizational behavior, research and evaluation, and technology. Students are required to demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the undergraduate business curricula through an integrated capstone course. Upon graduation, students will be adequately prepared for entry into the public and private sectors as entry-level managers.

Criminal Justice
The primary objective of the criminal justice program is to provide students with a curriculum that would qualify them to assume administrative, research and other professional positions in the criminal justice system. Courses offered in the program are designed to teach students how to develop and apply knowledge and critical thinking to current situations in our pluralistic society.

Elementary Education K 6/ESOL Endorsement
The Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education is designed for students who plan to teach students in grades K-6.

Liberal Studies
The major in liberal studies is designed to satisfy the educational needs of the student who is strongly motivated to pursue a bachelor's degree with a broad interdisciplinary study. Students will make meaningful connections across and within disciplines, and develop valuable skills in critical thinking, creative analysis and communication; skills that are vital to succeed both professionally and personally.

Psychology
This comprehensive program of study emphasizes instruction in the principles of the subfields of psychology which include developmental, abnormal, counseling, personality, measurement, and research methodology in psychology. Students complete a senior empirical research thesis which prepares them for success in graduate programs of their choice. Programs often include social work, public health, business, sports, law, human services, mental health counseling and psychiatric services. A required Field Experience in which they volunteer at local mental health agencies often gives students an advantage in obtaining entry-level employment with the agencies

Sociology
The Bachelor of Arts degree program in sociology focuses on the systematic study of human social institutions and social relationships. It includes instruction in social theory, sociological research methods, social organization, social stratification, dynamics of social change, family structures, social deviance and control, and applications to the study of specific social groups, social institutions, and social problems. In addition to promoting the development of critical thinking skills, practical knowledge and competency, and an appreciation of human differences and commonalities, the sociology curriculum is designed to develop in students an integrated sense of identity and civic responsibility.
