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 high quality, distinctive undergraduate and graduate professional programs to a diverse student population in New Orleans and beyond.
The school dates back to 1886, when it was founded as the outreach division of Tulane with a mission to offer courses to teachers. While the school’s offerings have greatly expanded and changed over time, its focus on programs relevant to working adults has remained.
