Educational Administration in Adult and Postsecondary Education

Master of Arts — Education

About the Program

The University of Wyoming master of arts degree in education with a specialization in adult and post secondary education was the first of it’s kind in the Rocky Mountain region. Today UW enjoys increasing recognition as a center of serious study in this area.

Areas of study include the following: adult development and learning theories; the social, historical, and global context of adult education; equity and access to continuing education opportunities for adults; and the development and delivery of post secondary education. Graduate study in adult education addresses the challenges faced by institutions and agencies in the design and delivery of post secondary education and the preparation of educators to meet these challenges.

Graduates of the program are employed as faculty and administrators in community colleges and universities, human resource developers, adult literacy educators, military training specialists, training coordinators for government and social service agencies, museum educators, adult learning consultants, and continuing professional educators in many fields including law, religion, nursing, and K-12 teaching.
