School Notes:

  • The School of Graduate and Professional Studies provides a variety of opportunities for adults who are changing careers, completing a degree, establishing new careers, or advancing their careers. Diverse programs are available for adults including undergraduate and graduate degrees. Many of the degrees and certificates are an accelerated format so busy working adults can finish their program in as few as 24 months. There are also majors that can be completed by working adults who want semester courses offered in the evenings and on the weekends.
  • In addition to traditional undergraduate degrees, Stevenson University also offers accelerated bachelor's degrees, BS/MS degree options, second bachelor's degrees and master's degrees.
  • One of the strengths of Stevenson University is its ability to offer rigorous courses that provide students a strong foundation in the liberal arts and sciences, plus skills and knowledge in their major fields, in a mentoring environment of small classes and personal attention by faculty. All undergraduate students must complete sixteen courses in a Core Curriculum that develops skills in writing, communication, and math and provides a basic understanding of the key disciplines in the liberal arts and sciences. Courses in the student’s major provide opportunity to acquire profi- ciency in a specific discipline that will prepare students for employment in the student’s chosen field of study.
  • Stevenson University is located on 60 acres just north of Baltimore in Maryland's beautiful Greenspring Valley. The University is widely known for its unique synthesis of a liberal arts coeducation and hands-on access to state-of-the-art technologies.
