If you are interested in working with adults in fields such as adult literacy, continuing professional development or postsecondary education, then an online degree in adult education and training may be the perfect way to further your career goals while maintaining your current work schedule.

An online degree in adult education and training typically includes courses in distance and continuing education, and methods of evaluating and teaching adult learners. Most programs allow students to choose electives tailored to their particular career goals. Some common areas of concentration include English as a Second Language for adult learners and education technology.

Some of these programs, such as Colorado State University's Master of Education in adult education and training, can be completed in as little as 16 months. Others may take two years or more to complete.

When assessing the quality of an online adult education program, look for programs that are accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. Also, examine the curriculum carefully. Some programs are aimed at those who wish to teach adult learners in school settings while others are geared toward corporate trainers and human resources professionals.
