About Adult Studies

The Adult Studies program is designed for busy adults, allowing students to juggle the demands of family, career, and their education.

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