SCHOOL OF PROFESSIONAL & GRADUATE STUDIES

You know a degree will help you reach your career goals, but can you possibly add college courses on top of everything else you do?

Baker degree programs are flexible and allow you to earn your degree while continuing to live your life. By taking one course at a time, meeting one night or online, you’ll dig deep into the material, really learn it, and use it immediately on the job.

Baker classes are held year-round, and new classes start frequently, so you can get started sooner rather than later. Courses are held online or in  Overland Park.
