School of Ed Plan A

The Adult Education and Training specialization is designed to prepare practitioners in planning and instructional responsibilities needed to teach adult learners in postsecondary, community, and corporate settings.

With coursework that is grounded in current adult learning theory and consistently connected to practice, this master's degree prepares graduates to successfully facilitate, design, and implement a wide range of training and educational programs.

Students may pursue either a research-focused Plan A course sequence or a practitioner-focused Plan B course sequence.

  • Plan A requires a professional research paper.
  • Plan B culminates in a capstone project in which students demonstrate the integration of their academic knowledge and professional abilities.
