Curriculum Planning & Development

The academic programs, on both the undergraduate and graduate level, in the Panuska College of Professional Studies at The University of Scranton flow from the fundamental assumption that programs founded as the "helping professions" rooted in the liberal arts must cultivate in its students a passion for learning. We seek to cultivate this passion for learning by providing:

a rich and varied set of course offerings

a faculty committed to teaching

extensive opportunities for undergraduate and graduate research, study abroad, clinical internships and fieldwork

outstanding facilities

You are encouraged to learn more about our academic programs in community health education, counseling, education, exercise science, health administration, human resources, human services, nursing, occupational therapy, and physical therapy through our website.

Through teaching, scholarship and service in a global world, we model excellence in our academic and professional fields. The University of Scranton is rooted in the philosophy of the founder of the Jesuit order, Ignatius of Loyola. At PCPS, we live according to the Ignatian vision. This vision belongs to the students whom we teach and with whom we learn. It leads us to the future. Our faculty members, deans, professional staff, and counselors are committed to helping you understand our curriculum founded in the mission of the University and the College.
