The Tulane School of Professional Advancement debuts a new course lineup for the fall semester with an open house event on Saturday, August 5, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The event will take place at the school’s Mississippi Coast Campus and is open to the public.
Formerly known as the School of Continuing Studies, the school was rebranded as the School of Professional Advancement in March 2017. This relaunch comes with several new program offerings, such as a Master’s of Professional Studies in Health and Wellness and a new concentration in Cyber Security. This new era for the school also brings with it an expansion of online courses, new community partnerships and additional, personalized student support services.
“Our new name represents our focus on educating working adults and offering applied learning, which means an education that is relevant and applicable to work and to daily life,” said Suri Duitch, dean of the School of Professional Advancement. “We want to prepare our students and graduates for opportunities in the 21st-century workplace, where deep analytical skills and a solid grounding in the arts and sciences are just as valuable as technical skills in a specific field.”

The program focuses on securing and maintaining the safety of individuals, businesses, facilities and communities through practical applications of security and emergency management. Graduates work in the fields of emergency management, cyber security and infrastructure management in government and the private sector.
