School of Professional & Extended Studies

Website: http://www.american.edu/spexs

The School of Professional & Extended Studies (SPExS) expands upon the mission of the existing Washington Semester Program , and includes other unique educational programs for pre-college, undergraduate, and post-baccalaureate students, and professionals. The School’s programs advance experiential learning, offer professional development opportunities, and promote intellectual growth driven by market demands and technological innovations. The School’s creative and academically sound programs combine both traditional and non-traditional curricula that enable students to gain new skills and ways of thinking for innovative learning, personal growth, and career redesign.

While building upon the solid foundations of its existing programs, the School of Professional & Extended Studies will develop new programs that meet the educational needs of pre-college students, undergraduate and graduate students within and outside the United States, and working professionals. SPExS offers degree credit, certificate, non-credit, as well as short-term continuing education opportunities for traditional and non-traditional learners. Through educational partnerships, the School develops customized training programs to meet the specific needs of business, industry, organizations, and government agencies.
