UC Online is excited to announce the first semester of this new 100% online program will be Fall 2023!
The Bachelor of Arts in Professional Studies with the University of Cincinnati Online is a fully online program where students can use their existing work experience toward a degree. This program emphasizes a breadth of study to teach students applicable skills that will make them more appealing in a job market that continues to grow more competitive. This program is ideal for adult learners with existing work experience as well as high school graduates interested in broad fields of study.
With more than half of the jobs in career paths related to this program requiring a Bachelor’s degree in addition to work experience, Professional Studies will help students hone their interests toward new applicable skills. The curriculum of this program is designed to flex according to each student’s aspirations and their unique situations.
UC Online is giving students the opportunity to let their life experience help them reach higher career milestones. There are many opportunities to fast-track the course load depending on how prior work experience applies for each student. This means students can spend more time studying their areas of interest.
This program is built for anyone who has completed high school level education or some college and have life experience ranging from professional work history to volunteer work emphasizing leadership and organization skills. There are three common goals students have when applying for this program:
Career Advancement – Honing skills with a degree to advance in their current field
Career Change – Pursuing a new career path and earning a degree for the skills needed
Degree Completion – Entering a program that accepts their existing credits toward a degree completion
If you are striving for at least one of these goals, this is the program for you! Your past life experience will be used in your favor to ensure you achieve your professional goals.
The University of Cincinnati Online believes that the voices of students deserve to be heard. This degree proves this by allowing students to build their own education track to focus on courses that they are most passionate about.
Not every student wants the same thing from college, so it makes sense that not every student’s journey will be the same in this program. While there are required courses, a Bachelor’s in Professional Studies is your best opportunity to take control of your professional growth. From your very first course, you’ll be working with our world-class faculty to assess your previous work and education experience to determine an education track fits your goals.
One of the top priorities at the University of Cincinnati is “Next Lives Here”, which is fully represented by this program. UC Online invites you to use your past to forge your future in the Bachelor of Arts in Professional Studies program.
