Professional Studies

Prior to being accepted into a traditional degree program, a student with limited English proficiency may have to take an undergraduate pathway. This program seeks to remedy gaps in a student’s language skills with courses in reading, writing, speaking and listening.

Those who pursue professional studies often find that such a program is an excellent way to prepare for a career after graduation. Topics covered in these courses of study may include industry-specific information, general professional principles, or important skills, such as leadership.

The United States of America is located on the continent of North America. It is the third largest country by size in the world. It has a relatively short history compared to other world nations, has one of the world's largest economies, and has one of the world's most diverse populations.
