Admission Requirements and Course Schedule for Adult Education Certificate
The post-baccalaureate certificate in adult education is open to individuals who already possess a bachelor’s degree and seek specific knowledge in adult education and administration. The 18-credit stand-alone certificate can be completed in just 12 months by taking two, three-credit courses (six credits) in each of the fall, spring and summer terms.

The certificate program includes effective adult instructional methods, yet its primary focus is on administration, supervision and leadership in adult education settings.
The program can also be a successful lead into Point Park University’s Master of Arts in curriculum and instruction, which can be completed on campus or through Point Park's off-campus graduate education cohort program.
