Off-campus degree programs provide an opportunity to earn a Shippensburg University degree or credentials at a location other than the university campus. Courses are offered in an adult-friendly format such as in the evenings, on the weekends, in a condensed schedule and/or through distance education.
Some of Shippensburg's off-campus programs are designed as a "cohort", meaning each course is offered one time at a specific location until the program is completed. Cohort programs are designed for the working adult who wants to take classes part-time on a year-round basis. Cohorts encourage camaraderie and support among classmates since the same group of students moves through the degree program together.
PCDE offers cohorts in the following areas of study:
