You want to continue your education, but your schedule, location, or family obligations mean attending a traditional campus will not work for you. Adams State's Distance Learning programs help you fit classes into your life. Whether you are an undergraduate student starting new or finishing what you started or a K-12 educator working toward meeting recertification requirements, we have the distance programs for you. Adams has a variety of clubs, groups, and organizations. Getting involved is a great way to connect with other students, faculty, and staff, and gain new life and career experience. Enrich your Grizzly experience by joining one of these select groups.
While students learn a variety of skills such as constructing climbing anchors, avalanche terrain assessment, risk assessment, or how to teach experientially, the core of an ALP course focuses on developing the person to be a better version of themself. ALP students gain the experience and confidence necessary to lead and collaborate well with others. The ALP prepares graduates for leadership roles primarily through field-based courses such as a 14-day backpacking course. In Minor in Adventure Leadership & Programming course, students learn many skills such as navigation, environmental ethics, and how to cook delicious meals in the middle of nowhere. Additionally, students practice leading and teaching to develop skills useful in any future role and responsibility they may have.
Many Grizzlies majoring in the Earth Sciences or Wildlife Biology, for example, add the ALP minor to give them more experience and confidence in the outdoors. Students interested in a major in ALP can work with the program coordinator to create an Interdisciplinary degree plan that combines the ALP with one or two other relevant areas of interest. The courses within this 21 credit hour minor build upon each other to deepen your learning, enhance your judgment, and to increase your capabilities as you apply your skills in a variety of challenging contexts.
The Office of Graduate Studies, along with Adams State's dedicated faculty and staff, works to ensure access and opportunity for graduate study throughout Colorado and the United States. Our programs are recognized for their academic excellence and diverse delivery methods.
ASU Extended Studies offers high-quality courses using the flexibility of distance delivery. Whether you are looking for a traditional setting or an online course, ASU can support you with your professional development needs wherever and whenever you choose. Extended Studies has partnered with recognized education leaders to deliver exceptional, content-rich, standards-based, relevant, accessible, and stimulating courses.
Adams State University Extended Studies offers graduate credit for a variety of in-services and workshops. These opportunities are made possible through a series of academic partnerships with incorporated third-party providers, school districts, and BOCES. Delivery formats for these courses vary from traditional to online to hybrid courses delivered nation-wide. School Districts, Principals, In-Service/Professional Development Coordinators, and incorporated entities may offer graduate credit to teachers through Adams State University Extended Studies. Because of the large variety of in-service training programs provided by the schools and our various partners, Adams State University Extended Studies does not have a list of pre-approved in-service courses offered through Extended Studies. Each course is evaluated individually. Courses previously offered may be offered again for up to three years, after which they will need to be re-approved.
