The Adult Education accelerated pathway is for selected students currently seeking a bachelor’s degree who are interested in pursuing a professional career in adult education and/or human resource development. An Adult Education degree prepares individuals to teach their specialty in community colleges; to work in community engagement projects; to conduct literacy, personal development, and workforce-preparation programs; to prepare adult educators for work in grassroots movements and social justice efforts; and for careers in organizational training and development/human resource development.

Candidates in the pathway must have at least a 3.00 undergraduate GPA prior to enrollment in the initial graduate course(s). For most candidates, this will be at the end of their junior year (sixth semester).
