About Adult Studies

The Adult Studies program is designed for busy adults, allowing students to attend class as few as four hours a week. Students can expect about 15 hours of reading, studying, research and writing per week.

A variety of teaching methods are used to help learners interact with one another, discussing assigned readings and applications of text theories. Students participate in cohorts that progress through the core courses together. Cohorts frequently form work and study groups as members support one another during the college experience.
