Whether its corporate training, community organizing, or teaching at a community college, this program will help you to move up in your chosen career.

Program Design

This degree program is designed for the working professional who finds it difficult to attend weekly classes. We meet one day each month at the Wilsonville Training Center in Wilsonville, Oregon.  Class begins at noon on Friday and runs until 8 p.m. that day.  These highly interactive and engaging sessions focus on the application of skills that can be utilized immediately in one's workplace setting. Assignments between the monthly meetings are supported through peer and instructional staff mentoring and coaching via the internet.

We are now accepting applications for the Fall 2017 cohort.

  • Priority admission is available for students who apply to the master's in adult education program before March 31 of each year, and students will receive notice of the admission decision no later than May 11.
  • Rolling admission is available to students who apply after March 31, and applications will be reviewed on a space-available basis until August 15.

Adult Education follows a cohort model, and therefore you must start in Fall term.

Note:  International Students are not eligible for participation in this program.  Due to the program's part-time status, international students are unable to obtain an appropriate educational visa.
