1 Creating Your Individualized Study Concentration with Adult Degree Program Online Modules
2 What people are saying about the Adult Degree Program at James Madison University As an instructor, I see the ADP at JMU providing opportunities for students often left on the fringe of higher education to put themselves squarely back into the center of learning. Rob Alexander, Assistant Professor, Political Science It s wonderful to work with students coming back to college to finish what they d started. ADP students tend to have drive and an understandable joy as they move toward earning their bachelor s degrees. Charles Blake Professor and Chair, Political Science I have really enjoyed working with Adult Degree Program students on their senior projects. I have been impressed with their creative project ideas, the depth of their experience, and the overall quality of their projects! Diane Wilcox, Associate Professor, LTLE As a graduate of the Adult Degree Program, I cannot express the importance of having the opportunity to complete my degree while working full time. I am so very thankful for all faculty and staff who work so hard to help make this dream a reality! Jackie Rufo 2

4 What is the Adult Degree Program? A university education is about learning to ask and answer complex questions. The JMU Adult Degree Program (ADP) allows highly motivated and self-directed students to pursue the questions about which they are most passionate. ADP students epitomize the intentional intellectual engagement at the core of a great liberal education: focused, rigorous, disciplinary learning, even when integrating multiple disciplines. ADP is not a means to vocational or applied versions of existing degrees; nor does it provide a secondary alternative to (or a light version of) existing majors. It is, instead, a place for students 22 and older to complete their bachelor s degree. It is a place for intellectually curious, reflective, and self-directed students who embrace learning for its own sake. This program is not a place to just get a degree; this is a place to pursue deep learning. What is the Individualized Study major? The Individualized Study major, the academic major for all ADP students, was developed specifically to assist in degree completion for adult learners. Students create unique, interdisciplinary concentrations that meet their own educational needs: advancing professionally, preparing for graduate or professional programs, or planning a path toward a career change. While most ADP students earn a Bachelor of Individualized Study (BIS), you also have the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Individualized Study or a Bachelor of Science in Individualized Study. The Individualized Study major also offers students a distinctive educational opportunity that allows them to integrate other college-level learning such as professional or military experiences into university coursework. Some distinctive features of the Individualized Study major include the following: An interdisciplinary concentration that draws on courses from two or more academic units and is designed to meet each student s individual goals and which does not duplicate a traditional major currently offered by JMU. Independent study classes that allow students to conduct research in areas not included in other courses. Online modules which give adult students the opportunity to complete their degree at JMU when their schedules or locations make attending on-campus classes difficult or impossible. For more information on the Adult Degree Program and the Individualized Study major, visit our website at Introduction to the modules ADP online modules are a more structured way of developing your Individualized Study major concentration as well as enabling you to complete your degree no matter where you live or what your schedule is. Module content was created by academic units at JMU to give you a strong foundation in each particular area. You can combine two or three of the modules to create your concentration, or, if you are able to commute to campus, you can blend them with face to face classes. 4
5 Current online modules include Autism Spectrum Studies, Applied Computing, Business Technology, Entrepreneurship, Professional and Workplace Communication, Human Resource Development, Sustainability, and Public Policy and Administration. How the modules work together To build your Individualized Study concentration, simply combine two or three modules based on your professional, educational, or personal goals. For example: Business Technology + Public Policy and Administration Human Resource Development + Business Technology Autism Spectrum Disorders + Professional and Workplace Communication Computer Science + Business Technology + Public Policy Administration Business Technology + Entrepreneurship Sustainability + Public Policy Administration + Professional and Workplace Communication How the modules work with on-campus classes If you live within commuting distance of the JMU campus, and your schedule allows it, you can also combine traditional face-to-face classes with one (or more) of the online modules for your concentration. Autism Spectrum Disorders pairs well with the coursework needed for students pursuing teaching licensure or those who focus their concentration on psychology. If you re adding classes in photography, ceramics, fiber arts, jewelry making, and/or painting to your concentration, Entrepreneurship will give you the skills to get your artsrelated business up and running. Business Technology provides strong skills for sociology, non-profit studies, public administration, political science, or justice studies concentrations. Human Resource Development pairs nicely with a concentration focusing on public administration, kinesiology, health-related areas or integrated science and technology. By completing the Applied Computing module, you will master a fair amount of computer programming skills. In addition, you will learn to write programs applicable to your chosen career field. As a result, this module would complement classes from just about any academic unit or career goal. Completing your degree online Can you complete your degree online through JMU s Adult Degree Program? Yes. If our modules interest you, you have completed all or most of your general education requirements, and you take advantage of other, nontraditional credit earning options, such as independent study classes, CLEP exams, and portfolios of prior learning experience, then you may be able to complete your degree online. Call the ADP office and talk with us. We can discuss your interests and how the online modules could work for you, what you still have left to complete your degree, and how ADP can help you achieve your goals, both educationally and professionally. 5

Between verbal questions and the chat feature in the software, the students interacted not only with me, but with each other. I really enjoyed working with the adult students as their experiences give them different perspectives on things. Laura Atkins, Instructor, Computer Information Systems I walked away from JMU seven years ago as a nontraditional student trying to fit into a traditional student box. The Adult Degree Program helped me finish with a concentration that is the most applicable to my career. My Capstone Project was a learning experience that I was able to bring into the workplace.

The course also explores strategies for promoting ethical behavior at the individual, organizational and governmental levels. PPA 412: Intergovernmental Relations and Service Delivery (3 credits, Spring, full semester) The founding fathers envisioned a system of government that would prevent the concentration of power into too few hands. Inevitably, the result was a form of government known as federalism, which allowed for dispersed power among a national government and subnational governments. There are, however, some challenges in governing in the federalist system of government. One is the difficulty of public service delivery in a dispersed federal system. This course will examine the historical origins of federalism in the United States, the benefits and challenges of this system of government and difficulties in public service delivery in areas such as education, emergency, management, social welfare and criminal justice.

ISAT 480: Selected Topics in Integrated Science and Technology Population and the Envrionment (3 credits, Summer, 10-week block) This course explores the scope, impact, and issues associated with humankind and its impacts on the natural environment. We explore the human dimensions of environmental change over a long arc of human history, from roughly 10,000 years ago to the present day. Basic human demography (mortality, fertility, and population growth) is introduced to understand why and how human population growth expanded so abruptly during the Industrial Revolution and again in the 20th Century; we also critique the concept of carrying capacity as it applies to the human population. We also address how lifestyle choices and the modern consumer economy shapes the relationship of population and society to natural resources, and how lack of access to critical resources (such as freshwater and energy) constrain development in low income countries. I m pleased CIS faculty had the opportunity to participate in the ADP. Our faculty now teach five ADP classes related to information technology. This gives them an opportunity to get extra work and also provides much-needed tech skills to adult students at JMU. Mike Mitri, Professor, Computer Information Systems 13
14 Other online classes for ADP students These classes can be used to fulfill general education requirements for the Individualized Study major (as indicated) or as electives. HIST 225: American History (4 credits, Fall; other semesters as needed, full semester) fulfills U.S. History general education requirement Introduces students to the central themes of American political and social history. Knowledge of our past is necessary in order to understand the present. Thus, we study United States history in order to better understand the major themes and concepts that shape American life today. The course examines the nature and growth of the intellectual concepts that structure American political activity, the operation of democratic institutions and explores the development of American society. The course examines, for example, questions about how Americans have understood justice, what it means to live in a free society, and about how best to understand and achieve the common welfare of American citizens. Because the United States has interacted with many parts of the world throughout its history, the course also stresses the evolution of American involvement in global affairs. SCI 101: Physics, Chemistry, and the Human Experience (3 credits, Spring, 2nd 8-week block) fulfills 3 of the 6 credits required for the Natural Science general education requirement This course is a survey of the fundamental principles, concepts, and ideas of chemistry and physics.
