Norwich graduate school adopts new name to reflect new programs

– Norwich University officials announced today that the School of Graduate Studies will now be known as the School of Graduate and Continuing Studies (SGCS).

In addition to several recently added graduate program offerings, SGCS now offers programs outside of the graduate model.

The name change reflects the addition of an undergraduate degree completion program for the U.S. Army Special Forces, the Bachelor of Science in Strategic Studies and Defense Analysis (BSSSDA), and a certificate in teaching and learning.

“We are excited about the growth and evolution of our online programs to serve the needs of the community, and this name change reflects that growth,” said Dean William Clements.

In addition to the new programs, SGCS offers graduate programs in diplomacy, military history, business administration, engineering, public administration, business continuity, information assurance, nursing and organizational leadership.


Norwich University is a diversified academic institution that educates traditional-age students and adults in a Corps of Cadets and as civilians. Norwich offers a broad selection of traditional and distance-learning programs culminating in Baccalaureate and Graduate Degrees. Norwich University was founded in 1819 by Captain Alden Partridge of the U.S. Army.
