  The Graduate School of Education 2007-2009 Master of Education (Ed.M.) Programs with No State Certification Programs in the Department of Educational Theory, Policy, and Administration Ed.M. in Adult and Continuing Education  

Ed.M. in Adult and Continuing Education


Coordinator:Dr. Harold Beder (732-932-7496, ext. 8213; email: hbeder@rci.rutgers.edu)

The program in adult and continuing education leads to the master of education degree and prepares professional educators to work with mature men and women in a wide variety of roles and settings. The program necessarily is flexible and cross-disciplinary to meet the diverse needs of its students. Most graduates work in nonschool organizations or community agencies, including colleges and universities, business and industry, health and social service organizations, and adult and family literacy and job training programs. All graduates are concerned primarily with facilitating adult learning and planning and managing educational or training programs for adults.

This program will not be offered after the spring 2009 semester.

(Note: There is no doctoral program in Adult Education. Adult educators who wish to pursue doctoral work generally seek admission to either the Ed.D. program in social and philosophical foundations, the Ph.D. emphasis in educational policy, or the Ph.D. emphasis in literacy education. In each of these doctoral programs, students may focus their dissertation research on adult education. Students should consult the catalog for admissions requirements for each doctoral study option.)
