University of Virginia

The School of Continuing and Professional Studies at UVA is positioned to provide continuous learning, both online and face-to-face, as required by the evolving needs of the 21st Century. It is focused on meeting the challenges of data literacy, technical competence, global readiness, and creative agility. As one might expect from Thomas Jefferson’s University, the School combines the academic and analytical insights of the arts and sciences with forward-looking applied knowledge.

The School’s mission is to be responsive to nontraditional learners by providing high quality continuing education opportunities that help them achieve their personal and professional goals.  In turn, SCPS has developed partnerships with various universities to provide master’s degree opportunities for its graduate certificate students.

The School offers 16 certificates (14 online) to those wishing to advance or change careers. If you’ve completed at least 60 hours of transferable college credits, you can complete your degree from UVA with either the Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies, or the Bachelor of Professional Studies in Health Sciences Management.
