EDU 600 (Introduction to Educational Research), a required course for the master’s degree, is offered fall, spring, and summer. This course is usually taught in several different formats each semester. Only matriculated students can register for EDU 600 and it is best to take it early in one’s master’s program. Sections of EDU 600 tend to fill quickly so be sure to register the day registration opens for your best chance to get in. 

Electives taken outside of the Adult and Higher Education Program require prior approval in order to be counted toward degree completion. Please communicate with your advisor prior to registering for such courses.
