Your experiences are valuable. At Troy University, we believe that sharing your experiences —whether they include military training, technical skills or an associate degree — can benefit you as well as other adult learners. If you’re interested in sharing what you’ve learned in formal academic settings, TROY’s occupational education program provides you with a path to do so and take the next step in your career.
If you served or currently serve in the Armed Forces, you can earn your adult education degree from a university dedicated to the success of military students. Since 1950, TROY has supported active-duty and veteran students and their families as students and faculty members. As a military-friendly college, TROY creates an inclusive environment that offers a broad range of quality, affordable programs to military students. Our occupational education degree program offers flexibility for active-duty military members. It is designed, in part, for U.S. Department of Defense civilian and military technicians, veterans and military personnel seeking promotion. Learn more about how TROY serves and supports military-affiliated students across the world.
TROY’s adult education degree allows you to teach adult learners in online education, workforce development, continuing education, higher education or military education.
A degree in adult education can lead to a number of career prospects or prepare you for graduate study. With a degree in adult education, you can work in community colleges, corporate settings, military training programs and several other contexts as an instructor, trainer or workforce development specialist.
Not all learning takes place in a classroom. Practical experience learned in the workplace can be just as valuable as more traditional educational qualifications. As the workforce ages, skilled workers must pass their knowledge and experience on to the next generation to ensure business continuity. This creates opportunities for people with practical skills to fill a range of jobs in education. However, knowing how to do a specific task is very different from being able to teach someone else how to do it.Read More
