Welcome to The Catholic University of America and the Metropolitan School of Professional Studies.

Our school exists to help working-age students to advance their careers, and their lives, through educational programs that provide an opportunity to develop new skills or to improve on the skills that you already have. As you’ll see on our Web site, we offer noncredit programs and credit programs that grant associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degrees.

Our faculty are experienced professionals who share their extensive practical knowledge about today’s workplace. What you learn in our classrooms today, you will be able to use in your job tomorrow.

Located proudly at the United States’ central Catholic institution of higher education, we believe that God has uniquely created each of our students. Our happy mission is to help each of them grow more fully into the person that God is intending.

To accomplish that mission, MSPS’s staff and faculty place you at the center of their focus.  At our school, you are not one of many; you are one of one.  You can expect our undivided attention and support throughout your time with us – when you are investigating programs, applying, studying with us, and even once you are among our proud alumni.  As a team, we will provide you the support that you need to complete your educational program successfully and happily.

I invite you to join us at the Metropolitan School of Professional Studies!
