Level Up with Industry-Driven Degree and Certificate Programs

Advance your career. Pursue your passions. Make your mark on the world. Sometimes, all it takes to level up is a little boost. Enroll in the College of Continuing and Professional Studies (CCAPS) at the U of M, and help you achieve your goals. 

CCAPS is designed just for people like you: Working and career-focused students from all walks of life, looking to empower themselves through education. If you’ve completed at least 30 transferable college credits with at least a 2.5 grade point average, you’re perfectly positioned to take the next step in your career.

Our market-driven, industry-aligned, professionally-focused degree and certificate programs emphasize the skills and knowledge you’ll need to fill leadership roles in some of today’s most in-demand industries, like construction management, health services management and IT infrastructure. 

Want to “try on” a certificate or degree path before fully committing? We’ve got you covered. You can enroll in a single course as a non-degree seeking student. 

Whether you choose a Bachelor’s degree, certificate or minor in your program of study, you can rest assured our applied programs focus on more than theoretical knowledge. With the insight and support of our instructors, advisory board and industry partners, we focus our programs on the applicable experience and skillsets that can prepare you for success at every level of your career. 

It’s time to level up.
