Curriculum: Ed.M. in Adult Education

This is a full Master of Education program that includes course work both online and face-to-face in a one-weekend a month setting. The curriculum includes issues that currently face adult educators and ways to address these issues that can be immediately applied into the workplace. 

Current course topics in this degree program include:

  • Adult development and learning theories
  • Instructional technology
  • Workplace learning needs assessment and research
  • Instructional systems design
  • Leadership and human relations
  • Designing training documentation

Students are required to complete an internship as part of this program to gain practical experience.

The weekend sessions are highly interactive, engaging, and focus on application of skills that can be applied immediately to one's workplace or educational setting. The sessions also offer students the opportunity to network with other professionals within their fields.
