A Kansas State University master’s program is expanding to the university’s Olathe campus, with the first course being offered this summer.
The master’s degree program in adult education will teach working professionals in the Kansas City area how adults learn, how to best present academic programs and how to market adult-learning programs.
The program is open to those who work with adult learners, including in the areas of corporate training, religious education, program administration and English as a second language. Students do not have to have an undergraduate degree in education.
The university also offers the program at Fort Leavenworth and online.
The degree will allow the Olathe campus to further partner with the animal health and food safety industry.
