Georgian Court launching Center for Professional Studies

Georgian Court University has created a new Center for Professional Studies, which launches in January and aims to deliver a range of educational options for working professionals.

The Lakewood-based college said the center will offer more than 100 programs when it opens in January, including courses, certifications and customized corporate training options.

“No matter the field, we all have to keep up with new and emerging technologies,” Leah Pontani, associate vice president for professional studies and business development, said in a prepared statement. “Classes in the Center for Professional Studies are designed to do that and more. For example, if you went to college as an English major or studied something else 15 years ago, and you’re working in an entirely different field, we can help you find ways to validate and master certain skills that capitalize on your 10-plus years of on-the-job experience.”

Subjects include topics in allied health, business, human resources, information technology, logistics and more, as well as arts and cultural offerings through the college’s McAuley Community Center.

Registration is open now, the college said. Courses will be available online and on the main campus.
