College of Professional Studies

No one should have to choose between education and family. The College of Professional Studies at Doane prides ourselves in the fantastic value, flexibility and support we offer our non-traditional students. With quick, eight-week terms, and evening or online classes to fit your busy schedule; students receive a personalized learning experience tailored for them.

Valuable lessons happen outside of the classroom, which is why at Doane, students can earn up to 30 credits for professional training or work/life experiences. Advisors work with students to create credit portfolios and assist students to gain college credit through on-the-job training, workshops, and volunteering.

We understand that sometimes life throws a curveball, and things like education can get sidetracked; this is why we created a flexible, and accessible model of continuing higher education. Whether you're a newcomer, have college experience, or are going in for a 2nd degree there is a place for you here at Doane. With physical locations in Lincoln, Grand Island, and Omaha as well as online courses, Doane's community is active, diverse, and dedicated to enriching the experience of those who want to learn.

Funding for P-LADC

Through collaboration with Doane University, the Behavioral Health Education Center of Nebraska (BHECN) is offering funding for a limited number of students interested in earning the Provisional Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor certification (PLADC).

According to BHECN, Nebraska does not have enough behavioral health specialists in rural and underserved areas. The funding for Doane eligible students includes tuition and fee costs for select courses. Funding may also be available for textbooks or to purchase a laptop.

This funding opportunity is available to eligible undergraduate students to complete 8 specified courses and 300 hours of clinical experience. Doane's Substance Use Counseling Program includes all courses required for PLADC certification. Students in the Masters of Arts in Counseling program may be eligible to receive funding for 3 graduate-level courses that meet the PLADC certification
