Career Skills Modules

The School of Professional Programs (SPP) has developed a series of Career Skills Modules (CSM) designed to provide working managers and professionals with the essential skills necessary to advance their careers. 

What is a module?

A module consists of 3 college courses. Modules cover a range of topics covering organizational skills and activities that are available in two levels for each topic (Part I and Part II).  The second module in each area builds additional skills based on the content of the first module.

What is a course?

Each course within a module is worth 3 undergraduate Marist College credits.  At 3 courses in each module, this equals 9 college credits.

Are these courses only applicable in these career skills modules?

All courses completed within the modules can be applied towards earning a Professional Studies undergraduate degree at Marist College (either as a first or second undergraduate degree).

Is this affordable?

Yes!  Tuition is designed to be highly compatible with the typical employee tuition reimbursement benefit policies at many organizations. Click here for more details on tuition for the School of Professional Programs.

A tuition discount of 25% is available for corporate partners of the College.  Find out if your employer is a Marist Corporate Partner.
