NCU Makes High Quality Education Accessible
Published: Thursday, April 26, 2012 11:04:02 AM

Proximity should not be a deterrent for those in search of quality education. Northern Caribbean University (NCU) believes in making education accessible and made this possible through the Department of Professional and Continuing Studies. The department was established as a medium through which the university provides high quality, Christian education, to numerous individuals who due to the constraints of work and/or family commitments are unable to access the university Mandeville campus for full time studies. It is the agent through which colleges of the University deliver academic programmes at convenient locations to persons wishing to upgrade or commence a new degree programme.

You can access a solid education at any of the three extension sites operated by the Department in Kingston, Montego Bay, and Salem Runaway Bay. The Department offers programmes with flexibility but the same quality of education available on the Main Campus. Here are just a few of the Associate and Bachelor degrees offered:

  • Business Administration
  • Social Work
  • Management Studies
  • Secondary education
  • Guidance Counselling
  • Primary Education
  • Hospitality and Tourism

 A few of the Short Courses are

  • Customer Relations Skills and Excellence in Service Delivery
  • Supervisory Management
  • Jamaican Tax Calculations and Compliance
  • Securities and Portfolio Management
  • Strategic Financial Management
  • Project Management
  • Spanish Language Survival Skills
  • Computer Literacy

Varying matriculation requirements apply to some of the programmes offered

Department of Professional and Continuing Studies is a strong supportive arm of Northern Caribbean University. Today, with a reliable and dedicated staff, it continues to render quality service to those who seek to attain a complete education.
