Professional Studies

Professional Studies

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​PC graduates in the fields of education, health policy and management, and social work are ready to hit the ground running, which is why PC’s School of Professio​nal Studies has earned a reputation among employers for excellent career preparation. At PC, extensive internship and fieldwork opportunities are an integral part of our curriculum—providing our students with the hands-on experience necessary to excel in the workplace.

Our students also have a commitment to service and leadership that sets them apart. Teachers serve communities by committing themselves to educating children. Social workers serve through a dedication to improving the lives of at-risk populations. Healthcare professionals serve by setting policy, improving financial management in the industry, and conducting research—all aimed at improving the health of the world’s citizens.​​

At PC, service and being a “professional” are inseparable ideals that, at their core, make the world a better place—and our graduates more employable.​
