Education SAPE: M. Ed. Adult Education

Program Features

Adult education is the transfer of knowledge and skills to adults through the facilitation of learning or training. Armstrong is one of the very few institutions of higher education that offers this degree, which prepares you for a wide variety of career opportunities, making it a popular and sought-after choice for individuals seeking advancement in many community and corporate settings.

The Master of Education in Adult Education degree assists in disseminating your knowledge and area of expertise to adults to become an educational leader in your current field and community, while enhancing existing skills and acquiring new knowledge in the area of human resource development.

Graduates of this program will go on to use their education in a variety of settings. Adult educators may direct programs or teach students in formal adult education centers, correctional facilities, social service agencies and business, institutional or corporate settings. Adult educators are not required to be certified and this degree does not lead to certification to teach in Georgia P-12 public schools.

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. Therefore, it is important that trainers and educators are prepared to effectively transmit their knowledge to others.
