Our bachelor’s in professional studies degree program is a degree completion program designed to maximize your prior college credits and place your career goals within reach.
Our bachelor’s in professional studies program helps you gain knowledge, skills and insights in areas such as leadership, management, communication and more. Enhancing these professional skills will position you to achieve success in a business, organization or government leadership career.
Eligible students with at least 60 college credit hours — or an associate degree — can transfer up to 90 credit hours, allowing you to complete your bachelor’s in professional studies degree in as little as three full-time semesters.
Your plan of study will include developing applied professional skills, an exploration of human social relationships and institutions, two area concentrations from more than 50 areas, and a culminating capstone project.
The capstone project involves working in a small consulting group to develop and present viable solutions to an actual industry problem.
Applying What You Learn to Real Work Situations
“I always regretted not completing my degree, so I’ve always had it in the back of my mind as something I wanted to finish. I found the professional studies program at UNC Charlotte and saw that it was completely online and self-paced. As I dug in a little more, I was intrigued by the classes that were offered.
It’s really eye-opening to see how much the leadership-based classes apply to my real-life work situations. Everything is relatable. The capstone is focused on design thinking — thinking outside the box — and one of the issues we’re currently working on in my department is putting more effort into recruitment and retention: why people leave, why they stay, and what we can do to encourage retention versus just continued recruiting.”
