Meeting the Needs of Working Adults



About Our Programs

Serving busy, working adults, Holy Family College offers programs at our home campus in Manitowoc, as well as in various locations throughout the state of Wisconsin. Both undergraduate and graduate programs are available in an accelerated format specifically designed for the adult learner; many of the programs offer the convenience of online courses.

Faculty for these programs have outstanding academic credentials, as well as a wealth of professional experience related to their fields, allowing them to bridge the gap between theory and practice. In addition, the faculty is charged with providing person-to-person encouragement and counseling for the students, as well as carefully structuring the classroom environment to allow for student growth and the adoption of new roles.

Our graduate programs have been accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. All graduate-level work is designed to combine theoretical knowledge, practical skills, and internalized dispositions upon which graduates of the programs can build higher levels of expertise and leadership in their field.
