Adult Undergraduate Programs
Interested in completing your undergraduate degree but never thought you could find the time? The Mount's School of Education and Human Services offers adult undergraduate programs in elementary education and criminal justice that are designed specifically for working adults. Adult undergraduate classes are held at the Emmitsburg and Frederick Campuses. In contrast to the traditional 15-week semester, most courses are offered in 5- or 8-week sessions. Classes meet once each week, beginning at 6:00 p.m. Sessions run on a year-round schedule. Students may also obtain college credits through testing (CLEP, DSST) or portfolio development designed to assess prior learning.
Classes are interactive, with an emphasis on teamwork, presentations, writing, discussion, and debate. Students are expected do extensive work outside the classroom.
