Develop Skills and Knowledge with a Master's in Adult Education and Development
Strayer University’s Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Adult Education and Development degree is valuable for any educator looking to further his or her goals in a career in education.
For K-12 teachers, earning a master’s degree in education may lead to a pay raise or promotion opportunity (department chair or faculty mentor). For those who want to teach in higher education, holding a graduate degree is a requirement. For all who work to educate children and adults, earning a master’s degree in education offers the opportunity to hone skills, stay current on the latest trends in the field, and serve students more effectively.
Enrich your knowledge of adult teaching theories and methods, and explore how to design, develop, implement, and assess various learning platforms. Youll focus on how to foster an understanding for diversity and create inclusive learning environments.
Online classes and on-campus coursework in the Adult Education and Development degree program is designed for professionals interested in working with adult learners in various settings, such as corporate training/workforce development programs, the military, government and community agencies, and post-secondary institutions.

[Note: In many school districts, a master’s degree in Adult Education and Development can lead to salary increases or opportunities for advancement. Usually, certified teachers may pursue master’s degrees at any accredited school. However, someone with a bachelor’s degree who is seeking certification or administrative licensure would need to get a degree from an “approved program” and should check with his or her state and employer before enrolling in any program.]
