Armstrong Edge

Although this degree prepares its graduates for a wide variety of career opportunities, it is offered in very few institutions of higher education, making it a popular and sought-after choice for individuals seeking advancement in many community and corporate settings.

Career Opportunities

As an adult educator, you may teach large classrooms of students at the high school or university level, or you may teach small groups of adults in corporate settings. Sometimes, adult educators work with students on an individual basis. Because information and technology are being created at such fast rates, employees are finding that they must remain in continual learning mode in order to have the necessary skills to successfully complete their jobs.
