On-Campus & Online Degree Programs for Working Adults
Never Stop Learning.
Mount Vernon Nazarene University’s School of Graduate & Professional Studies (GPS) has examined the intersection of professional aspirations and job market trends since 1993 to develop a range of degree programs for working adults. Today, students enrolled through GPS can earn a bachelor’s or master’s on-campus in central Ohio—including at our main campus and regional locations—or completely online.
At MVNU, "lifelong learning" is in our official motto. That means we're committed to helping you learn in a way that fits into your life. Our adult education programs provide the quality you expect from an award-winning institution with the benefit of flexibility. Our accelerated courses are offered one at a time, one night a week. Plus, most courses can be completed from the convenience of your own home and around your own life.
Whether on-campus or online, MVNU values success in the classroom and the workplace. Using expert-developed curricula, our adult degree programs blend theoretical concepts with practical skills you can readily apply on the job and, reflecting MVNU’s overall vision, value integrated knowledge across a range of disciplines. In the process, discussions and assignments stress critical thinking, communication, and creative skills while emphasizing a Christian worldview, ethical mindset, and commitment to community engagement.
No matter your major, MVNU bases our on-campus and online classes on a cohort model, designed to foster a supportive, encouraging environment between students and their professors. Particularly for adults looking to advance in the workplace, this format is ideal for forming connections that later lead to professional relationships and advancement opportunities.
