The Accelerated Degree program is a career-oriented educational adventure that combines knowledge gained in the classroom with real-life project experience.

Our curriculum is rooted in developing the "essential workplace skills" so many employers today require.

This includes:

  • Powerful Communications (spoken and written)
  • Effective Teaming (both as a leader and team member)
  • Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
  • Resilience and Emotional Intelligence.

The program enables adults with two years of college to complete their degree in less than two years.

This team based program provides a rich mixture of hard and soft skills. The program consists of 16 courses each lasting five weeks. Students meet with their instructor for a four hour session once a week and with their teammates on another night of their choosing. Student assessment is based upon individual and team contributions – just like the workplace – through class participation, assignments, projects and presentations.

By combining workplace experience and insights with knowledge gained in the classroom, students develop advanced skills for the most challenging and competitive business environments. If you are looking to advance your career, the School of Continuing Studies can help you gain the skills you need to succeed!
