Academic Mission

The College of Professional Studies (CPS) provides an academically rigorous education to high-achieving adults who are balancing educational and professional aspirations with life’s commitments.

Grounded in the Augustinian mission and core values of Veritas, Unitas, and Caritas, CPS celebrates the diversity and creativity of all members of our academic community, and seeks to inspire global citizenship, professional excellence, and lifelong learning.

CPS embodies Villanova’s enduring commitment to provide access to academic excellence, and offers premier, relevant, and innovative programs, taught by an engaging faculty of scholars and practitioners.
