Master of Education in Continuing and College Education
Linking Theory to Practice, Policies, Research and Evaluation!
Our internationally renowned program is intellectually rigorous, emotionally satisfying, and valuable for professional development. And it is flexible to fit the lives and aspirations of adults. In our program we engage you in the big picture of adult and higher education--we link learning theories not only to real-life practice and situations but also to policies, research and evaluation. Our approach begins with our student community.
We will engage you in:
- Inquiry-based learning (i.e., action research) for the new workplace emphasizing team-based projects and problem-solving
- Shared leadership to understand organizational development and power with social justice aims
- Thematic based coursework that focuses on timely topics and issues in adult and higher education and learning
