A Message from the President
Welcome to Capella University
You may have initially selected Capella University because it
offers the accredited program you seek, or because of its convenient
24/7 availability, or because it came highly recommended by a friend
or family member. But we’ve found that after one course, our learners’
reasons for attending Capella University change. What our learners
find in the courserooms is an active and engaging community of
learners and faculty, in which learners are invited to contribute
their own knowledge and experiences while benefitting from the
perspectives of their peers. Our learners tell us that this
interaction with world-class faculty and with fellow learners from
around the globe not only builds their skills and capabilities, but
inspires them to make a difference—in their own lives as well as in
their work places and communities.
This catalog is a
comprehensive resource that gives you a sense of the breadth and depth
of Capella University. It contains detailed descriptions of our
schools, programs, and courses, as well as helpful information about
our learner-facing services, policies, and procedures.
What the catalog cannot adequately convey is the power of the learning
experience you will find here. During your time at Capella you will
build strong relationships with faculty, fellow learners, and
advisors, and you will engage in an academic program that is more
rigorous and rewarding than you can imagine.
I wish you
the best of luck in your studies and for your future academic and
Thanks for joining us.
