Welcome Message from the Dean
Established in 2001, the College of Professional Studies (CPS) at the George Washington University embodies the virtues that higher learning must embrace to meet the challenges of the 21st century. CPS is a harbinger of the changing form and function of a modern academic unit anchored in centuries of intellectual tradition in our nation’s capital. Academic programs at CPS cross the rigid boundaries of traditional disciplines, and integrate knowledge and skills necessary to excel in existing or emerging professions.
