Division of Professional Studies
Serving the needs of adult and online learners.
Holistic learning. Rigorous curriculums. Real-world application.
Butler’s Division of Professional Studies (DPS) was established to serve the needs of adult and online learners through degree, certificate, and non-degree programs. We also help organizations achieve their employee training and development goals through the creation of custom programs tailored to an organization’s needs.
Our programs have significant market appeal and are highly distinctive in the higher education space, providing opportunities for students to gain new knowledge, skills, and expertise employers not only value, but need to remain competitive in the ever-changing business environment.
