Which Path Will Lead You to Success?

Bachelor of Professional Studies Program at the College of Charleston

The Bachelor of Professional Studies (BPS) program provides adult students with the skills they need to succeed in the 21st century. We designed this program with flexibility in mind. Now, busy adults can balance their work and life responsibilities with their academics. We offer concentrations in four areas of study.

The concentrations are applied communication, healthcare and medical services management, organizational management and development and project management.

Certificate Milestone Option: The College of Charleston has designed a certificate in project management milestone option for those concentrating in applied communication, healthcare and medical services management and organizational management and development. Because this certificate consists of the six courses in the project management concentration, this option is not available to those concentrating in project management. To learn more, click here.
