Prepare For Your Future
If you are working in a nonprofit, have an associate degree (or 60 college credits) and seek to move into a leadership role in the nonprofit sector, the University of Connecticut has designed a degree-completion program for you. The Bachelor of Professional Studies in Nonprofit Leadership allows you to enter UConn as a junior (if you have an associate degree), complete your degree and prepare you for management roles in your organization and the nonprofit sector.

The degree-completion program was developed by the University of Connecticut Nonprofit Leadership Program in partnership with the University’s Department of Public Policy, Schools of Business and Social Work, and leaders of the Connecticut nonprofit sector.
