The Online Graduate Certificate in Adult Education is designed to help professionals work effectively with adult learners in a variety of learning environments. This online certificate is especially attractive to people who teach or develop programs for adults yet do not have a Master’s Degree in Adult Education or the skills needed to educate this growing adult population. The online certificate provides a basic background in adult learning and program planning, as well as the diverse philosophical, theoretical, and historical contexts of adult education in the United States.
The Graduate Certificate in Adult Education is NOT the equivalent of a state teaching license nor preparation to earn a teaching license.
If you choose to pursue a master's degree in Adult Education, these certificate courses may apply to your degree requirements. Completion of the certificate program does not guarantee admission to the master's program.
