Adult Education (Minor, Cert)

Adult education programs provide a range of instructional services to help adults develop the skills for further educational opportunities, job training and better employment, and to realize their full potential as productive workers, family members and citizens.

It provides a strong background in adult learning and program planning, as well as the diverse philosophical, theoretical, and historical contexts of adult education in the United States.
