On July 1, 2016, the Alan Shawn Feinstein College of Continuing Education in Providence became the Alan Shawn Feinstein College of Education and Professional Studies (CEPS). The Alan Shawn Feinstein College of Education and Professional Studies provides a variety of opportunities for education to transition effectively to meet future demands and trends, with a focus on equity and social justice, academic excellence, active lifelong learning, flexibility, and financial sustainability. The focused and synergistic efforts across our Kingston and Providence campuses are aimed directly at preparing teachers, adult learners, and professionals to be leaders in their careers and communities. The opportunity to merge the existing components and areas of expertise already in place across the two campuses and coordinate our efforts as the Alan Shawn Feinstein College of Education and Professional Studies enables us to create a thriving college that provides greater benefits to our students, faculty, local community, and state. This collaborative college offers our learners access to innovative, customized, developmentally appropriate, and flexible opportunities through which they gain both interdisciplinary knowledge and practical experience in real community settings.
Degrees are offered in the two CEPS schools: School of Education and School of Professional and Continuing Studies.
Minors: Students can declare a minor which will appear on their transcripts as a category separate from their major. See Minor Fields of Study.
