The Mission of the School of Continuing Education and Special Programs is to provide and support quality lifelong educational learning experiences and to serve as an advocate for students along the Greater Gulf Coast as they interact with the global community. This includes providing educational services to individual students as well as to institutional clients.
We are committed to serving our diverse student population through exemplary practices in teaching, research and service to the community. Those using our services have a wide variety of goals including the pursuit of a career change, advancement in a designated field, acquisition of a degree, personal enrichment, development of professional skills, development of basic skills prior to beginning a full-fledged academic program and involvement in international education. All have one goal in common. They seek to fulfill their potential.
We offer a comprehensive academic curriculum to a diverse public, with credit and non-credit programs delivered in a variety of locations and formats: classrooms on the main campus, the USA Baldwin County campus; the Alabama Southern Community College campus in Monroeville; and online. Students may attend during the day, evening, or weekend. Study abroad opportunities are plentiful. Our Interdisciplinary Studies students have had internships in countries such as Switzerland, France, and England.
In addition, we offer educational/academic and training services in corporate offices or other nontraditional settings. Non-credit programs are designed to fit our region’s needs for the global workforce and we customize courses for businesses and higher education partners, such as our upcoming 2013 Summer Course for Fuzhou University Zhicheng College students.
