Ball State and Indiana universities are working together on education doctorates.
IU students who earn master of science degrees in adult education from the school’s Indianapolis campus now can transfer up to 30 credit hours toward a doctorate in adult, higher and community education from Ball State.
The two schools announced the agreement at the American Association for Adult and Continuing Education conference in Indianapolis on Wednesday. Ball State Teachers College Dean John Jacobson says the partnership puts students first.
IU School of Continuing Studies Dean Daniel Callison says the program provides an option for students in distance programs to secure credentials in high demand for instruction and research in the growing field of adult studies. Ball State’s doctoral program prepares students for careers in education, government, industry and nonprofits.
