The Paine College Center for Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS) provides quality educational opportunities to the Greater Augusta Community, country, and the world.


The central purpose of the Center for Advanced Professional Studies at Paine College is to extend the College's learning community beyond the core partnership of faculty and traditional degree students, furthering the educational mission of Paine College in a welcoming and non-competitive setting for adult learners.
