The Master’s degree in Adult and Community College Education is one-of-a-kind as its primary commitment is to part-time students who are full-time working professionals. Full-time students are eligible for consideration to receive full funding through scholarships, fellowships and research and teaching assistantships, which allow our students to work with top faculty on cutting-edge projects. To meet the needs of full- and part-time students, most courses are offered once a week during late afternoon or evening hours. Some courses are regularly available during summer sessions and weekends and through distance education technologies. The Master in Adult and Community College Education provides opportunities to specialize in one of three areas: Adult and Continuing Professional Education, Community College Teaching, or Health Professions Education.
