The Master’s in Continuing and College Education program is designed for those who desire to teach, consult or administer education programs, materials and policies targeted to adult populations. The Continuing and College Education curriculum links theories to practice, policies, research and evaluation. It prepares graduates for competency and knowledge in the areas of instructional technology, e-learning, research methods, teaching, methodologies, adult literacy, diversity issues, curriculum development, leadership and management, policy issues, assessment and evaluation, adult learning, and program development. Graduates will work in settings such as community/technical colleges, universities, government agencies, non-profit organizations and business and industry.
The 52 credit course work is offered in hybrid format (some sessions at the main campus in Bellingham).
The program is designed for working adults. Completion time for the program is designed for two years on a part-time basis.
Students may choose all of their elective credits from the program or apply up to ten credits of 400 level TESOL coursework toward the degree.
