The Master’s in Continuing and College Education program is designed for those who desire to teach, train, and administer education programs targeted to adult populations. The Continuing and College Education curriculum prepares students for competency in the areas of instructional technology, teaching, training, curriculum development, leadership and management, project management, assessment and program planning. Graduates will work in settings such as business and industry, community/technical colleges, universities, government agencies, and not-for-profit organizations.
All course work is offered at the main campus in Bellingham or via distance learning. Refer to the Extended Education Programs section of this catalog.
The program is designed for working adults, therefore the majority of students enroll for part-time study. Completion time for the program is designed for two years.
Students may choose to do a specialization; certificates are available in two optional areas:
❑ Community and Technical College Teaching [21 credits]
❑ Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) [28 credits]
For more information, see the Continuing and College Education website at www.wce.wwu.edu/Depts/CCE.
The program prepares both entry-level and advanced practitioners as teachers, trainers, educators, and administrators, particularly in community college and continuing education settings.
