Academic Departments

 A Rollins education challenges students to connect to new ideas, think critically, communicate effectively, and prepare for meaningful lives and productive careers. This is the essence of our applied liberal arts philosophy and the guiding principle behind the new College of Professional Studies. The CPS curriculum is designed for Rollins students who wish to pursue careers in the competitive fields of communication, education, and international business.

The CPS curriculum combines traditional liberal arts courses with classes devoted to specialized topics and professional training. For a Rollins student who has already decided on a career path, a CPS education offers an edge. Every CPS graduate will enter the workforce with added experience, knowledge, and confidence.
