A Commitment to Non-traditional Learning

February 2017 marked 20 years since the board of trustees approved a degree completion program for non-traditional students. The Accelerated Degree Program (ADP) has seen significant growth in those 20 years, having graduated approximately 2,570 students to date.

Looking to the future and to the synergies that exist between ADP and Albright’s graduate program in education, a newly coined School of Professional Studies will now maintain these programs.

Kevin Ezzell ’03, ’12M, director of accelerated and graduate programs, said that by creating the School of Professional Studies the College is acknowledging its commitment to non-traditional learning.

“The School of Professional Studies gives the College an increased level of nimbleness, which will allow for the exploration of new programs. It lays the groundwork for the College to be more responsive to the needs of non-traditional students, including options such as certificate programs, which give working adults the opportunity to gain additional knowledge and expertise in a specific field. It allows for continued collaboration among all Albright College faculty members.”
