College of Professional Studies
About Us

The College of Professional Studies (CPS) at Alfred University offers leading bachelors and graduate programs designed to prepare students with the knowledge, skills, and applied experiences to be successful for today’s complex world.  The College houses programs of excellence preparing undergraduate students for careers and leadership roles in business, education, and heath and human performance practice settings.

With a strong foundation in liberal arts, CPS students learn about global issues, humanities and sciences, while beginning to explore the roles and knowledge bases within their profession.  Practica and labs help students to affirm their interest in the major; while hands-on experiences in client-based classroom projects, field experiences and internships provide opportunities to hone real-world analytic and decision-making skills.  Students are encouraged to explore options for minors that will cultivate their interests and provide unique professional preparation for the world of work or continued graduate studies.
