The Sciences

Find Your Path within The Sciences

Today’s scientists are part of an esteemed lineage over 5,000 years old, dating back to Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia. Driven by observation of the world and the desire to understand it, scientific interest is almost an innate human characteristic. Science and those who study it challenge the way we think, how we live in today’s world, and our planning for the future. They uncover problems, invigorate solutions, and elevate our understanding of the world in which we live.

At the College of Continuing and Professional Studies (CCAPS), we’re here to help build leaders within the Sciences. That’s why we offer the programs you need to develop the skills you need to take charge in the scientific workplace and in your career. Let us show you what it takes to advance your career in a multitude of settings—the government sector, nonprofit agencies, research centers, laboratories, international organizations, multinational corporations, and more.
