Concerns About Starting Program

We have received several inquiries from persons concerned that they cannot start the courses without completing the application.  Please remember that you can take up to 9 credit hours prior to being admitted to the degree program.  We strongly encourage you (if you are considering the degree) to complete the non-degree application and begin the first course, EDACE 780: Introduction to Adult Education on June 28th.  You can start the degree with any course; however, we would like to stress that starting with the Introduction course will be an advantage.  This link will assist you in “How To Enroll

Introducing K-State online Master’s degree in Adult and Continuing Education

The Adult Education faculty are moving their dynamic face-to-face master’s program to an online format.  Courses will still be offered face-to-face in locations throughout the state of Kansas.  However, the educational formats are changing and the faculty want to give students an online opportunity as well.  We believe this format will reach a wider audience and we will be able to assist more people.

When the average person on the street is asked, “what is adult education?” Many respond that it is something to do with adult basic education or education after college.  Actually, the field of adult education is very broad.  It really involves any programs that are designed for the adult population. In their 2007 book, The Profession and Practice of Adult Education, Merriam & Brockett defined adult education as “Activities intentionally designed for the purpose of bringing about learning among those whose age, social roles, or self-perception define them as adults” (p.8).  If you can situate your professional or volunteer activities within that definition, then this is the degree program for you.  Contact us at
