Graduate Studies and Continuing Education

Our graduate and continuing education offerings include 11 master's degree programs with options for concentrations, a doctoral program in humanities and the Doctor of Nursing Practice, along with a bachelor's degree in nursing for licensed registered nurses. Many programs also provide options for four-course graduate certificates.

Our programs feature small classes led by faculty with real-world experience and the opportunity to take courses on campus in Newport, at the Center for Adult Education in Warwick or online. Each program provides unique and individualized opportunities for personal growth, interaction with experienced faculty members and ethical development.

Programs are available in a variety of formats, including classroom-based semester-long courses, compressed seven-week courses and hybrid courses that combine online learning with the classroom experience.
