COLLEGE OF PROFESSIONAL STUDIES E-NEWSLETTER
Message from Dean Robert Deahl
In an effort to address the changing landscape of adult higher education, the College of Professional Studies has begun a program review to focus on its adult undergraduate degree programs. As a result, the college has made changes to its graduate offerings: the Master's in Leadership Studies program, including the Master's Certificate in Sports Leadership, will move with its faculty, staff and resources to the College of Business Administration and Graduate School of Management; the Master's in Public Service program will move to the Graduate School; and the college will continue to explore options for the master's degree and certificate in dispute resolution.
In addition to its primary focus on adult undergraduate degree programs, the College of Professional Studies will continue to deliver the Future Milwaukee community leadership program.
There will be no immediate changes to curriculum and costs per credit hour will remain the same. As in the past, students in the Master of Arts in Public Service program will receive their degrees from the Graduate School. Students in the Master's in Leadership Studies program will receive their degrees from the Graduate School of Management.
