The Alan Shawn Feinstein College of Education and Professional Studies  is a rich learning experience in an environment of multigenerational and multicultural diversity. This collaborative College offers learners access to innovative, customized and flexible opportunities to gain interdisciplinary knowledge and practical experience in real community settings. The College is home to the School of Education, based at the Kingston campus, and the School of Professional and Continuing Studies, based at the Providence campus. This unique two-campus college approach provides a wider range of educational opportunities for traditional students direct from high school and adult students who have had some or no college experience with undergraduate courses, and students currently in the workforce who want to retrain or enhance their skills through graduate and certificate programs. With this interconnected approach, students have many options for active lifelong learning and workforce development programs for continuing education. The Providence campus is well poised to provide better benefits to students, faculty, the community and state.
