Adult Studies Program


East-West University Adult Studies Program (ASP)

East-West University’s (ASP) Adult Studies Program supports the goals of students who are preparing for the workforce and those who are already in the workforce. All degrees offered through the college are geared to accommodate the diverse population of students by offering undergraduate courses with flexible class schedules to meet the needs of non-traditional-aged students.

ASP allows the non-traditional students the flexibility of evening, weekend and project based classes; we also consider closely the distinctive personal and professional objectives of each student. Students enjoy access to a world-class affordable education, a collaborative learning community and East-West student-centered faculty. 

ASP students develop a highly marketable skill set and are prepared to take an integral role in reshaping tomorrow’s workforce. Students will interact with expert faculty and practitioners; they will develop cutting-edge skills linked to a wide array of career opportunities. 

The classes are taught by a dedicated group of faculty and industry leaders who use analytical and creative approaches in a highly energizing, constructivist format. Students will be called upon to solve real-life problems and develop the capability to be prepared for the workforce. 


East-West University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA), effective since 1983.
