The online master’s degree in Adult and Continuing Education is designed to offer many opportunities for students to tailor their program of study to their professional needs. Students may combine this degree with one of K-State’s online graduate certificate programs.

The Master’s of Adult Education is a 33 credit hour program. To fulfill the final examination requirement, students complete a portfolio as they progress through the degree program. The portfolio is due during the student’s final semester of coursework. Students may complete the program by taking face-to-face (Olathe and Ft. Leavenworth locations) or online courses or a combination of the two available options.

The graduate certificate in Adult Learning consists of five courses that emphasize how adult learning principles and instructional methods can be used to strengthen skills of trainers and educators who provide educational opportunities for adult learners. This program will assist any working professional who would like to expand their skills in the areas of adult curriculum design, learning theories and methods of teaching, and program evaluation.
