The Academic Affairs Office works with faculty, staff, and students to maintain and improve the quality of the students' educational experience and the quality of academic support services at the University. The Office also serves as the focal point for dialog in the formulation and maintenance of University policies, procedures, and guidelines for all academic affairs of the University.
Our goals are:
Post University is organized into three major divisions:
The undergraduate curriculum structure at Post University is intended to prepare you for lifelong learning and a successful career in the 21st century.
As a career-driven university with a strong tradition in the liberal arts, Post University is committed to providing you with an opportunity to build a firm foundation in the sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities. The general education core at Post University provides you with the ability to make connections across disciplines so you're better prepared to respond to a diverse and constantly changing global marketplace. You are able to choose from a variety of courses according to your interests and curiosity.
At Post University, all majors provide a pathway to a number of career areas and specific jobs. The courses you take as part of your major are the "nuts and bolts" you'll need to land a job in the field of your choice.
At Post, we are committed to preparing students to be successful in their careers and stand out among their peers. A critical element of this learning process is a leadership course that includes an interdisciplinary perspective on foundations underlying all organizations. These include management, leadership, domestic and international economics, ethics, social responsibility, entrepreneurship, marketing, e-commerce, information technology, human resource management, accounting, investments, money and personal finances. The skills learned are essential for success in any career, whether in a for-profit or non-profit business, or government organization. The ability to apply the principles learned in this course will help set Post University students apart as leaders in their fields.
All Post University undergraduate Accelerated Degree Program students take two Learning Across the Lifespan courses that provide theoretical bases and practical strategies for lifelong learning. Emphasis is placed on critical thinking, study skills, analytical reading, effective writing, reasoning, problem solving, time management, and strategies for management necessary to support learning in a college environment. Students will analyze their own learning abilities and styles and develop effective practices for learning throughout their lifetime.
Because the ability to communicate ideas is a key for success in today's marketplace, Post University has instituted a writing-across-the-curriculum policy that requires a writing assignment in every course offered by the University. The Post University Writing Center is open to all students who want to improve their skills and/or get feedback on their writing.
The goal of the academic advising program is to assist students in realizing their full academic potential. At Post University, the advisor-advisee relationship involves a shared responsibility. While students benefit from individual attention and interaction with their academic advisors, they are expected to know and understand the curricular degree requirements for their selected major field of study. Academic advisors assist their advisees in selecting majors, scheduling courses, and interpreting academic policies and procedures.
To be considered for federal financial aid, students must be enrolled in an eligible degree program. Prospective students who are having difficulty selecting a major should work closely with the Academic Advising Office and the Office of Admissions to identify a major that meets their career needs and objectives. There also are resources available in the Office of Career Services to assist potential students to assess individual preferences and strengths and to explore career options.
