Session Outline

As a field’s literature base deepens, an academic discipline can emerge and lead to the development of a profession. For an academic discipline to thrive, new scholars must be trained in its specialized knowledge. Kansas State University was the first institution to offer graduate programs in academic advising. Subsequently, other graduate programs have been developed at various institutions.

Kansas State University’s College of Education offers an online graduate certificate, master’s degree, and doctorate in academic advising. Developed in consultation with NACADA, these programs help students develop new research-based skills for working with college students. During this session, program faculty will share information about each of the three programs.
