Troy University offers new online master's degree in Florida

Posted: Monday, 26 August 2013

Troy University has been approved to offer the 33-hour Master of Science in Adult Education degree in the state of Florida. The all-online program is designed to be completed in less than 18 months and offers concentrations in Curriculum and Instructional Design, Instructional Technology and Leadership Studies.

“The program excels in preparing individuals in multiple facets of adult education and provides an excellent foundation for a career or advancement in the public and non-profit sectors," said Dr. Lance Tatum, Vice Chancellor for Global Campus, the arm of the University that oversees operations outside of the state of Alabama and online through its eTroy operation.

Students have the opportunity to select one concentration that compliments core courses. Courses focus on contemporary issues in adult learning, and, depending on concentration, students are prepared to function in multiple adult education venues.

The Adult Education graduate program will be of interest to professionals across various disciplines who work closely with adult populations in instructional, advising or service capacities; education training and development professionals, corporate and military trainers; and those who manage educational technology and inventory at educational organizations, said Dr. Kathryn Hildebrand, Dean of the College of Education.

“Our faculty members who teach in this program have been noted as some of the best in the field of adult education, and graduates from this program have been very successful as they used this degree to advance in their professional fields. We are extremely excited to extend this program to Florida residents," she said.

Candidates for admission must hold a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited college or university. Additional details about this and any other of TROY's range of online programs and the application process are available at the university's Florida locations in Tampa, Orlando, Panama City, Fort Walton Beach (including Eglin AFB and Hurlburt Field) and Pensacola or by visiting the university's web site at
