Continuing Professional Education

Credit and non-credit courses offered through Continuing Professional Education and Workforce Development help professionals advance, change, or refocus their careers, and support organizations with custom education solutions.

The Office of Continuing Professional Education and Workforce Development offers a variety of options for professional development.  Beginning in April 2019 is our Certificate in Web Development.  The Web Development Bootcamp is a part-time, immersive, 14-week course that gives you the technical skills & experience you need to build web apps from start to finish, along with the most sought-after communication, innovation, and fundamental skills needed to be successful in the growing world of web development.

Additionally, we offer four-week online courses for educators that take place annually in Fall, Spring I, Spring II, and Summer sessions.

We partner with school districts, education collaboratives, and other institutions and organizations to offer graduate credit to educators for course work or conference attendance. If you are an institution/organization interested in partnering with us to offer graduate credit, click Partnership in Educational Professionalism.

If you are or wish to become an instructor, click For Our Instructors and learn more about the required documentation, grading instructions, and submitting new course syllabi.

Our portfolio of online and classroom based professional certificate programs in paralegal, legal, management, marketing, business, and leadership are impactful, highly applied, and grounded in industry standards. Programs are designed to help professionals gain specific and targeted skill sets that enable them to advance professionally while continuing to work.
