We strive to stay on the cutting edge, and as a result, we have integrated project-based and problem-based learning. This allows students to collaborate directly with external partners, companies, organizations, and agencies to develop authentic solutions to the real-world challenges these organizations face.

Student Testimonials

"The implementation of Problem-Based Learning allowed me to apply my education far beyond the scope of my normal work. The opportunity to consult with external groups, utilize research skills and critical thinking are invaluable in an analytical role in my organization. After this program, I will confidently begin a Ph.D. program this summer."

"The Park University Adult Education program gave me the tools I needed to validate my abilities as a graduate level educator. The program taught students to develop lesson plans, research material needed to make informed decisions, and intelligently discuss divergent points of view related to adult education. My newly learned abilities and skills are directly applicable to my work and are used to build the educational content used in my business."
