A Message From The Dean
Welcome to SCPS
Thank you for your interest in our accelerated undergraduate and graduate degree programs. As leaders in adult education for over fifty years, SCPS is committed to delivering high quality academics through research-based practices. Our faculty have real-world experience, modeling how to apply what you learn in the classroom to your work life. Our general core curriculum also emphasizes practical knowledge and foundational skills to enhance critical thinking, communication, and citizenship.
From the point of admission, SCPS supports you in the balance of study, work, and life responsibilities. Undergraduate and graduate students may select courses in two main formats – (1) online or (2) blended (mixture of online and ground) at our Elizabethtown, Harrisburg, or Lancaster campuses. Academic advisors work closely with students to ensure progress in their program and construct a plan for completion. Students can take advantage of our “step-in, step-out” course schedule, which allows for breaks between class sessions, or choose a more expedited path to reach your professional goals. Whatever your choice, Elizabethtown’s SCPS offers programs to meet the educational expectations and needs of every student at every stage of their life’s journey.
Please contact me, or any member of the team, for more information about what SCPS can do for you.
Dr. Rachel Finley-Bowman, Dean
