Welcome to the new Tulane School of Professional Advancement.
Our name has changed from the School of Continuing Studies but our mission has stayed the same.
SoPA offers both the Bachelor of Arts degree and the Bachelor of Science degree in a range of disciplines that can help you develop knowledge and skills for success in the workplace. Many courses are available both in the classroom and online. “On ground” classes typically meet once a week, mostly during the evening. SoPA students also have access to many courses in the sciences and the liberal arts offered by other schools at Tulane University. Bachelor’s degrees at SoPA require earning at least 120 credits (of which 60 must be earned from Tulane).
Bachelor’s degrees at SoPA require completion of at least 120 credits (a minimum of 60 to be earned from Tulane University), a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 and a grade point average of at least 2.0 in all major and minor coursework (if the student is taking a minor). At least half of coursework for the major and half for the minor must be completed at Tulane. SoPA students may also major in programs outside of SoPA; these programs may have slightly different requirements.
