WKU online program reaching out to those working with adult learners

WKU’s Department of Educational Administration, Leadership and Research and the Office of Distance Learning are reaching out to Adult Educators. The WKU Online Master of Arts in Education in Adult Education prepares graduates to develop and deliver programs that serve the specific educational needs of adult learners.

The Online M.A.E. in Adult Education offers a broad foundation for the professional who will render a wide variety of adult education services. Because adult education touches so many, this program offers multiple concentrations to meet the various needs of its students. These concentrations, which range from 30-39 credit hours, allow students the freedom to choose a course of study that is best suited to their individual goals.

“Adult education is one of the fastest growing fields in our economy,” said Dr. Jim Berger, program advisor. “Wherever adults are learning, an adult educator is usually involved. We train adult educators who work in community and technical colleges, cooperative extensions, adult basic education, corporations and community organizations.”

This degree is perfect for those individuals who do not have the time or opportunity to come to campus for a class. Every course in the curriculum is taught online by WKU faculty, allowing students the same expertise and training as on campus classes but with the flexibility to complete coursework when it is convenient for them.

Applicants to the program have a variety of options, including taking the GRE or completing a admission portfolio.  Teaching certification is not required for admission to this program. Students are encouraged to begin the program this summer. The introductory course will be offered beginning June 14. To apply, students should contact the WKU Office of Graduate Studies.
