The Division of Adult Professional Studies offers degrees in undergraduate and graduate disciplines.  Division of Adult Professional Studies programs are regionally accredited by Middle States Association and professionally accredited by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE).


Through a supportive, academic, learning environment, Roberts Wesleyan College's adult management programs seek to develop self-directed, lifelong learners for ethical and effective leadership in a changing world.


The programs housed in the Division are tailored specifically and uniquely to provide the answer to challenges faced by adults as they integrate attainment of their educational goals with their commitments to family, profession, and community.

The following programs are available:

Bachelor of Science in Organizational Management

Since 1986, Roberts has provided non-traditional education options for adults over age 25 with careers and families who aspire to earn a bachelor's degree.  The B.S. in Organizational Management is a degree completion program offered in a convenient format so that working adults can attain their educational goals through coursework in management theory and systems, finance, organizational dynamics, statistics, organizational change, effective communication, and contemporary issues.  Students can earn their degrees in as little as fifteen months, attending class one evening per week.  The degree program continues to evolve to meet the changing needs of the students and the workplace.  Additional information about this program is available at or by calling 585.594.6210.

Pathway Program

The Pathway Program was developed as the complementary support component of the degree completion programs at Roberts.  Pathway provides opportunities for adult learners over age 25 to satisfy credit requirements for the Organizational Management and Health Administration programs.  Courses are offered in a five-week accelerated format on week nights and Saturdays.  These courses serve as an excellent introduction to non-traditional learning.  For additional information about this program, contact the program office at 585.594.6905 or view the website at
