Adult and Graduate Studies

Programs Overview


Welcome to the Adult and Graduate Studies Department at Westminster College.

We understand that adult education needs are different.  It can be a challenge to balance coursework with a job, family, and other personal responsibilities.

Therefore, with our degree programs, we strive to accommodate your busy life. 

Our department’s Lifelong Learning Program (LLP) offers bachelor’s degree programs and teaching certification programs for adults wishing to start or complete their degree or earn their teaching certification.

To accommodate busy adults, many of these classes are available in blended (classroom and online) and accelerated formats, and in evening and summer sessions.

Graduate degree programs at Westminster include the master’s degree in education with the opportunity to be certified as a reading specialist, elementary and/or secondary school counselor, school principal, and superintendent of schools.

We also work with advanced high school students wishing to earn college credit in our high school – college dual enrollment program.

Our continuing education program offers adult education (non-credit) courses for professional or personal enrichment. 

The Adult and Graduate Studies Department at Westminster offers many adult education opportunities, and we would like to help you reach your goals – whether to complete your degree or learn a new skill.  Contact us today.
