The Working Professional

"I chose to start taking classes as a working professional at VCU because I wanted to accelerate my career development. The courses offered aligned with my career goals, worked well with my busy schedule, and the professors were eager to help facilitate my success. Now that I have my undergraduate degree I'm excited to explore the many graduate degrees offered by the University!"
