Masters in Adult Education - with a Cognate in Correctional Education
A Master of Education in Adult Education is a graduate degree catered to education professionals who are not associated with the K-12 education system. There are over 250 million adults who are seeking other types of formal education, education that focuses on lifelong learning related to adult life context. Our 18-hour graduate core meets the national standards for Graduate Programs in Adult Education.
To start, the Founders School of Continuing Education is offering two Professional Development graduate level courses:
Integrating Career Readiness into the Adult Correctional Education Classroom - 7 week course beginning August 27, 2018
Integrating Employment Skills into Correctional Education Classroom - 7 week course beginning October 29, 2018
You can click on the course titles for more information and to register.
Before moving into additional classes beyond these first two, students will need to apply to Ashland University to enter into the graduate program at the College of Education. Application to the University is not required for the first two PD courses.
