Introducing the Graduate Studies Blog Series

Professor for adult learners, Dr. Adrian ZappalaThe demand for post-secondary adult education in colleges and universities continues to grow as more and more working adult learners seek career advancement opportunities through higher education. Working adults face a number of competing responsibilities while pursuing their education – often balancing the demands of hectic careers and busy families. That means they need programs that directly correlate to their careers.

That means they need Peirce College.

Peirce has been Philadelphia’s leader in higher education for adult learners since 1865. Our career-oriented graduate programs offer you immediate applicability in organizational leadership and healthcare administration. We developed these programs in conjunction with major Philadelphia area employers and organizations, ensuring that classroom learning reflects "real-world" practices. Peirce College continues to build upon its history by offering practical advanced degrees designed to help graduates move up in their careers.

Within the past five years, Peirce College has expanded upon its mission by offering graduate programs in both Organizational Leadership & Management and Healthcare Administration. These master’s degrees were designed for career professionals seeking advancement into leadership positions. Our graduate students gain applied leadership skills through classroom exercises, networking opportunities, and organizational experience.

And just like our undergraduate students, graduate students can complete their courses either online or on campus – or both. Any week when on-campus learners can’t make it to campus, they can take their class online. And any week when online learners need in-person teaching, they can come on campus. Combined with the ability to enroll part-time or full-time, this incredible level of flexibility allows you to balance your career needs and goals with your personal and family life.
