1 DIVISION OF CONTINUING AND INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION (DCIE) The mission of the DCIE is to provide educational programs to meet the needs of nontraditional students, including adults, pre-college students, part-time students and international students. Our primary goal is to promote the academic excellence of the University of Miami and the expertise of the faculty through outreach programs. By developing, marketing, and administering short courses, seminars, workshops, lectures, and special events, Continuing and International Education is able to provide access to the public at large as well as to degree seeking students. In addition, Continuing and International Education coordinates weekend credit courses and provides advising services for returning adult students. Continuing and International Education is an agent for University outreach in the community and serves the corporate world with professional certificates, continuing education and workforce training. Allen Hall, on the Coral Gables Campus is the administrative headquarters for the DCIE and the location for the Intensive English Program, the Intensive Language Institute, and programs for adults returning to school and preparing for career advancement. 284

2 BACHELOR OF GENERAL STUDIES DEGREE PROGRAM Introduction Under the leadership of Collegiate Studies, the DCIE offers the Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) degree program, which provides a solid and rigorous, interdisciplinary academic experience for adult, part-time students. It is designed specifically for adults who have previously attended college but have not yet completed their undergraduate degrees, as well as for those who have never had the opportunity to pursue post-secondary studies. You are eligible for admission if you graduated from high school at least four years ago, have not attended the University of Miami during the past calendar year, have a minimum of 2.2 grade-point average on previous college work, and are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. The BGS curriculum allows an individual the flexibility to design an area of concentration to enhance professional or personal goals. The core of the BGS is its interdisciplinary colloquia. Designed to strengthen critical thinking and writing skills of the students, each course is taught by exceptional University of Miami faculty who are committed to the adult student. Advisors offer personalized attention in career exploration and academic advising and discuss educational alternatives with potential students. Every effort is made to ensure that the process - from admission to registration - is efficient and convenient. Students may attend day, evening, or weekend classes to complete their educational goals. To underscore its commitment to the adults in our community, the University offers a special tuition to students in the Bachelor of General Studies program which enables the adult, part-time student to pursue this degree at an affordable tuition rate. The admission process takes into consideration that one s grade-point average, while significant, is only one factor in determining an applicant s qualification for acceptance. Therefore, an admissions interview with an advisor from the DCIE will be scheduled to supplement the information you provide on the BGS application form, which may be obtained by calling Collegiate Studies at (305) or at Requirements for Graduation I. Candidates for the Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) degree must complete the required credit hours and achieve the quality point average specified for students in the University at large as stated in the section Academic Regulations and Procedures. Exempted is interpreted to refer exclusively to those exemptions provided under the following headings: A. Advanced Standing and Placement (Credit Granted); B. Credit by Examination; C. Advanced Placement (by proficiency examination); II. Except where a required course is one designated to correct a deficiency in his/her college preparation, the student may apply the credit hours of any required course from which he is exempted toward the hours for that subject as a general requirement for graduation, toward the 120 credits required for graduation. (See Departmental Proficiency Examinations.) An exemption may be granted for English 105, but these credits may not be applied towards the 120 required for graduation. 285

4 VII. Electives 15 credits Students choose elective courses in consultation with their advisor to meet the 120-credit graduation requirement. 287

5 CREDIT CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS Not everyone needs or wants a complete degree program. Recognizing this, the DCIE - in cooperation with several other colleges and schools of the University - offers special Credit Certificate Programs. Focusing on a single subject, these certificate programs allow students to concentrate on courses that offer the specific knowledge and skills needed for career advancement. All courses are taught by University of Miami faculty at the undergraduate level and are taken for academic credit. Each certificate program varies in the number of required credits. While required courses are noted, students may work with an advisor in developing an individually-designed program. Credit certificate programs are currently available in the following subject areas: Certificate in Accounting The Undergraduate Certificate in Accounting is awarded by the Division of Continuing and International Education and the Department of Accounting. It is designed for those who hold at least an undergraduate degree (preferably in business) from an accredited college or university, and whose present interest or occupation is accounting. The program requires students to take the same 24 semester hours of accounting courses required for the undergraduate major in Accounting. To sit for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) examination in Florida, students must have completed 120 semester hours, including 24 semester hours of accounting (above the elementary level) and 24 semester hours of business courses, including a minimum of six hours of business law. There are additional educational requirements to become licensed as a Certified Public Accountant in Florida. Students may wish to consider either the Graduate Certificate in Accounting or the Graduate Certificate in Taxation (offered by the School of Business) to meet those additional education requirements. Certificate in Computer Information Systems The Certificate in Computer Information Systems program is designed to provide a broad background in business computer information systems and to develop the technical skills one needs to stay competitive in this challenging field. The program will be of particular benefit to programmers and to management information systems analysts. The certificate is awarded by the DCIE and the Department of Computer Information Systems upon the successful completion of 18 credits.
