Professional development and continuing education

St. Scholastica provides career development options in a variety of formats on in-demand topics. MOOCs and webinars on business, healthcare and more.

Love of learning is one of the five Benedictine values the College considers an integral part of the student experience. This value guides us to create scholarly, artistic and scientific works that enrich and enlarge human life. As part of this value, we offer professional development and continuing education for anyone who shares our desire to learn and deepen their knowledge across a broad range of topics.

The College offers two online formats for professional development and continuing education.


The future of higher education is online. Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are classes that are offered online, free of charge. Students progress through the course material at their own pace, moving as quickly or slowly as necessary. Subject mastery is tested through online assessments. MOOCs allow our talented educators to reach a wider audience giving students the option to learn from anywhere.

Benefits of MOOCs
