This major provides students with preparation to work in teaching positions in higher education institutions, such as community colleges and four-year colleges. Anticipated interest groups for Adult and Higher Education are persons wanting to teach as their major responsibilities and who have approximately 18 credit hours in the subject area and/or licensure they want to teach (e.g., business, sociology, foreign language, etc.). This program is also geared to act as a spring board into similar doctoral programs at terminal degree granting institutions.
To apply for admission into the M.Ed. in Adult and Higher Education, candidates must complete an online or paper application, found online at the Jackson College of Graduate Studies webpage. Applicants must also submit official copies of all transcripts from each college or university attended.
