The Bachelor of Professional Studies (BPS) degree is intended for students interested in completing a bachelor’s degree through evening classes. The program is designed to equip students with immediately applicable skills and competencies while preparing them to understand, serve, and lead their organizations.
This degree-completion program provides graduates with both theoretical and practical educational experiences tailored to enhance their current professional capabilities as well as prepare them for new career opportunities.
The BPS program is designed for individuals possessing a minimum of 30 credits. To fulfill degree requirements, students must earn a minimum of 120 credits, 30 of which must be earned at UMW.
Due to the nature of the BPS program and changing technology, only transfer course work that has been completed within ten years of BPS program matriculation can be counted toward concentration requirements. Transfer coursework that is older than ten years will count as general education or elective credit only.
Current concentrations in the BPS program are:
- Computer Information Systems
- Geographic Information Science
- Information Assurance and Security
- Interdisciplinary Studies
- Leadership and Management
