Graduate & Professional Studies

Graduate Program

Nichols GPS offers four graduate programs, a Master of Business Administration (MBA) consisting of 36 credits , a Master of Science in Organizational Leadership (MSOL) consisting of 30 credits, a Master of Science in Counterterrorism (MSC) consisting of 30 credits, and a Master of Science in Accounting (MSA) consisting of 30 credits. In addition, five different dual degree options are available: MBA/MSC (54 credits), MBA/MSOL (48 credits), MSA/MSOL (48 credits), MSA/MSC (48 credits), and MSC/MSOL (48 credits).

All GPS courses are delivered in a modified HyFlex model. This gives learners the flexibility to choose the learning mode that works best. Each week there is a 90-minute synchronous session. Most courses are offered on campus and online, but some, including all MSA courses, are exclusively remote. A student can participate face-to-face or remotely via a learning Web-conferencing tool. Participation in the 90-minute session is strongly encouraged and work done in the session may be required and graded. However, in the event that a student is unable to be present (physically or remotely), the 90-minute synchronous sessions are recorded and posted in the learning management system for all students to access at their convenience.
