History

Thomas Jefferson envisioned that his University of Virginia would prepare the young citizens of the Commonwealth and the nation to pursue productive careers in public service, agriculture and commerce. Since its founding, the University educated students in a residential setting designed by Jefferson himself.

By 1915, however, it became apparent that the Founder’s vision extended to students who were not able to study and learn in Charlottesville. Therefore, a “Bureau of Extension” was organized to provide outstanding public service and continuing and professional studies programs to the citizens of Virginia and the nation.

Today, the University of Virginia’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies annually serves more than 10,000 individuals in credit and non-credit courses of study, as well as degree and certificate programs. The School creates opportunities for non-traditional students to study and learn with distinguished faculty across a number of academic disciplines on-Grounds and across the Commonwealth. While some programs of study are focused on applied studies, SCPS students are also exposed to the traditional disciplines which serve as the foundation for all learning and scholarship.
