Center for Professional Studies


The Center for Professional Studies (CPS) has offered professional development to working professionals for over a decade, collaborating with school districts, businesses and other professional groups on continuing educational needs.

Fitchburg State University believes that excellence in education practice must be supported beyond the conferring of degrees or professional licensure. As such, the CPS is a key element of the university's total strategy, providing educational opportunities to working professionals during the critical years of induction into their profession and throughout their career.
