Adult Education/Organization and Human Resource Education

The Adult Education program will prepare you to meet the unique demands of adult leaders in business and industry, government, community agencies, online environments, and community college programs. Our courses in theory, system design, assessment, research, and instructional technology, as well as internships, provide you with the tools and knowledge to design curriculum and implement the most effective learning strategies in a variety of educational settings throughout your professional career.

Program Design

This degree program is designed for the working professional who finds it difficult to attend weekly classes. We meet one weekend each month at the Wilsonville Training Center in Wilsonville, Oregon. Classes begin in the afternoon and evening on Friday and continue all day Saturday. These highly interactive and engaging weekend 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 2015 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 1.
  • Rolling admission is available to students who apply after March 31, and applications will be reviewed on a space-available basis until August 15.
