Concentrations in Strategic Leadership or Training and Development; both entirely online!
The Master of Professional Studies (MPS) is a 33 credit, online interdisciplinary graduate degree designed for working adults who wish to pursue graduate studies that combine two or more disciplines in the professions and the social sciences. Because MPS students’ academic needs and interests are varied, they often are not well served by traditional professional programs. For the purposes of the MPS program profession is defined broadly, rather than limited to traditional areas such as law, medicine, or business.
The MPS degree allows students to develop individualized programs of study that make connections between various professional fields and traditional social science disciplines, and respond to the dynamic needs of rapidly changing professional environments. Professionals who might be served by the MPS program include those working in commerce, information technology, mass media, government, social services, health care, and/or education. The MPS is a TN eCampus degree program offered cooperatively by ETSU and other Tennessee higher education institutions.
