Department of Professional Studies (DPS)

The Department of Professional Studies at George Fox University offers four majors and three minors to adult students who are returning to college to complete their undergraduate degree.

The majors are unique alternatives to the traditional method of pursuing a college degree. Courses are designed to meet the needs and learning styles of working adults. Classes are conveniently located and meet one night each week, as well as online.

Students study with other adults who share similar interests and concerns. Together they form an academic learning community, drawing from their own personal, professional, and technical backgrounds as they follow an intense program of classes and individual study.

Students who successfully complete the courses of their major program and the accompanying degree requirements such as general education and prerequisites are granted either a bachelor of science degree in project management (MPJM), or a bachelor of arts degree in social and behavioral studies (MSBS), management and organizational leadership (MGOL), or healthcare administration (MGHA).

Through these programs, the Department of Professional Studies serves the needs of adult learners and helps them assess personal values, develop interpersonal skills, and enhance competencies in order to better contribute to the organizations and individuals they seek to serve.

The Department of Professional Studies offers the following degree completion majors and minors:

BA - Healthcare Administration (Major and Minor)

BA - Management and Organizational Leadership (Major and Minor)

BS - Project Management (Major and Minor)

BS - Social and Behavioral Studies (Major)

Other degree completion programs offered at George Fox include Elementary Education and Nursing.
