The School of Professional Studies (SoPS) at CSU-Global Campus provides relevant and practical online learning opportunities in a global context to students in human services, criminal justice, communications, education, and public management. These learning opportunities offer non-traditional, young adult and mature learners with active engagement in their chosen discipline through career-relevant applications. Our faculty and staff are deeply invested in quality outcomes for students, which assure successful career preparation, placement and service.


Through mission-focused, innovative social services programs, the SoPS aims to provide an engaging learning environment, which connects students to real-world learning opportunities. The SoPS at CSU-Global operates in a professional learning community framework, which means we consistently ask:

  • What do we want students to learn?
  • How do we know they are learning?
  • What do we do if they are not learning?
  • How do we celebrate their learning?

Our faculty, staff, and administration of the SoPS provide support to our students in an accountable, collaborative, and continuous growth structure. To this end, we adhere to and advocate for the core values of the university:
