Auburn’s College of Education graduate and certificate programs provide next-level training for professionals in any career field

Auburn has strong traditions of honoring those who serve and creating innovative educational programs to equip students whether they are continuing their military service or beginning civilian careers.

Adult Education programs and certificates prepare learners for careers in adult education fields, including high-demand positions as curriculum and instructional designers, as well as business and industry trainers, college and university faculty, teachers of adult basic education, independent training consultants, and educational program writers and evaluators.

Innovative training options like the Workforce Education, Training, and Development certificate — available fully online and on campus — create dynamic options for students at any stage in their career.

Auburn’s Adult Education program provides professional development opportunities for individuals engaged in adult-centered learning and training in a variety of workplaces. Graduates become facilitators who educate, train, manage, retrain, design, deliver or evaluate activities within the global teaching and learning environment.

But don’t take our word for it, read what our graduates say about our program:

“Completing the Adult Education graduate program elevated me professionally and personally more than I believed was possible. From beginning to end, I was encouraged to broaden my mind, think outside of the box, and implement the methodologies provided to cultivate positive growth through learning in the workplace. As a younger leader, the knowledge gained through the Adult Education program has allowed me opportunity to flourish.” — Jenna Abbott, Master of Education

“Being in the Adult Education program at Auburn was one of the most impactful experiences in my life. I do not say that lightly — when I first got into the program, I was new both to graduate school and the United States, and the program taught me everything I needed to thrive here. I am particularly grateful for the Adult Education faculty. I felt that they saw me not just as a student but as a mentee, someone that they genuinely cared for and wanted to succeed. After graduating, I was able to find a job as a tutor and to pursue my graduate studies here in the U.S, and that's all thanks to what I learned during my years at Auburn.” — Lucas Adelino, Master of Education

"The Adult Education program at Auburn University allowed me to achieve my academic goals in a supportive environment. The flexibility of instructional methods and the quality of educators set me up for success from the beginning. I am a first-generation college graduate, with a Ph.D., thanks to the Adult Education program." — Chris Hardman, Ph.D.

“Auburn’s adult education helped prepare me to be a better leader in the workplace. I feel better prepared to help unlock the unlimited potential that education can bring to others and even to myself. Further, the program has inspired me to never stop learning and to advocate for what I believe in." — Mattie Bohanan, Master of Education

With one of the largest programs in the nation, Auburn University’s online program is ranked #14 among best Colleges of Education by U.S. News & World Report.
