Panuska College of Professional Studies


The J.A. Panuska College of Professional Studies houses academic undergraduate and graduate programs in a community of learning where students receive exemplary preparation for the profession of their choice and a solid education in the liberal arts and sciences. The Panuska College’s academic programs are committed to community based learning through theory and practice, developing our students into being “women and men for others.” All students in the College’s academic programs perform community service through coursework and projects as a requirement for graduation. The College is set apart by its commitment to service, devotion to the Ignatian qualities of care for one another and concern for those less fortunate as demonstrated in the Leahy Community Health and Family Center. All of the PCPS programs are accredited by the appropriate professional organizations.

Behavioral Standards of Conduct

All students at the University of Scranton are held to the behavioral standards established by the Academic Code of Honesty and the Student Code of Conduct. Further, students in many of the programs offered by the Panuska College of Professional Studies (PCPS) also are bound by standards of conduct established by their chosen profession (check with your program director, program catalog and program handbook for program-specific standards). Violation of these behavioral codes or standards may delay or prevent placement of a student in fieldwork required for degree completion. Further, many programs in PCPS require criminal background and child abuse clearances. A criminal history may preclude placement of a student in fieldwork required for degree completion, which would ultimately prevent a student from completing their degree program.  A student’s ability to obtain a state license or certification may be affected also. It is the student’s responsibility, prior to selecting a PCPS program of study, to familiarize themselves with the standards of their chosen profession and, once selected, to adhere to the behavioral standards established by the University and their profession. Students should immediately inform their program director of any past or current behavioral issue, including background clearances, to understand how it may affect progress toward degree completion or licensure.
