About SCPS

The School of Continuing and Professional Studies (SCPS) is Manhattan College's school that is focused on adult learners. We offer a blended learning approach that combines traditional classroom work with online classes. The approach provides the best of both worlds offering our students the flexibility and convenience afforded by online courses with the personal attention and community of a classroom setting.

The mission of the School of Continuing and Professional Studies is to prepare adult students for success in emerging global, corporate or industrial environments. The school is committed to creating and offering programs designed to serve the adult population with a particular focus on mid-career adults desiring to advance their professional careers and/or fulfill personal achievement goals. The school is dedicated to offering all programs in convenient and flexible formats. All courses are offered in the evenings, from 5 p.m. to 9.p.m.

SCPS was established in April 2011. Currently, the school offers a master's degree in organizational leadership and an undergraduate degree completion program (which has been in existence since 1997). The programs are designed as an accelerated, cohort-based educational experience.
