WWU to Provide Overview of Programs for Working Adults

William Woods University representatives will conduct an information meeting for Hannibal area residents Tuesday, Nov. 5, to explain how working adults can pursue further education without quitting their jobs.

The meeting will provide an overview of William Woods University’s Graduate & Adult Studies (G&AS) programs. It will be held at 6 p.m. in the River Room of the Hannibal Inn, 4141 Market St., Hannibal.

William Woods offers a number of Graduate & Adult Studies programs, including an associate of arts in liberal studies (AA), ACCESS (general education), a bachelor of science degree in management (BSM), a bachelor of science in computer and information management (CIM), a master of business administration (MBA), an MBA with an accounting emphasis, and MBA with a health management emphasis, an MBA with a human resources emphasis and a master of education (MED) in both administration and in curriculum/instruction.

In the beginning, the G&AS programs were located only in mid-Missouri. Now, thanks to the growing demand, William Woods has expanded G&AS programs to more than 50 locations across the state for the convenience of interested students.

These programs make it possible for a person with a full-time job to complete a degree while remaining employed. Courses are facilitated by practicing professionals. Classes meet one night a week for four hours and courses normally run six weeks.

“William Woods University is a leader when it comes to designing quality programs for nontraditional adult students. Everything we do here at WWU in our Graduate & Adult Studies program is specifically designed to help adults succeed in reaching their goals as efficiently as possible,” said Betty R. Tutt, vice president and academic dean.

Non-traditional students reflect a growing national trend as more full-time working adults realize the value of maintaining a sustained involvement in higher education. Many adult students recognize that they need additional education either to advance in their current positions or to change careers.
