The Department of Clinical Research and Leadership offers programs for professionals who are interested in obtaining a quality education, working with experienced and knowledgeable faculty and field practitioners, and contributing to the development of new knowledge and practice within their chosen clinical field of practice. Comprised of dedicated faculty and staff, our bachelor's, master's, graduate certificate, and post-baccalaureate certificate programs approach education and leadership development from an interdisciplinary perspective. In this way, we cultivate students' skills in critical thinking and research, while guiding important insights into their chosen field of study.

The Clinical Research and Leadership programs are best suited for practitioners interested in formalizing their educational and professional accomplishments through a degree or certificate. We embrace the fundamental concepts of adult learning and encourage collaboration, experiential learning, creative thinking, and self-direction. Our programs are fully online in an asynchronous format, with no on-campus requirement.
