Mission and History

For over 150 years, Muhlenberg College has been educating students in the liberal arts tradition. Seeing a need for adult education in our community, the College began offering adult courses in 1910. Over a century later, the tradition of quality continues.

Through positive, inclusive, and innovative approaches to learning, the mission of the School of Continuing Studies is to transform people’s lives, build community and enhance society.

The School of Continuing Studies strives to provide lifelong learners the opportunity to continue and enhance their education, and to do so in ways that recognize their experience, maturity, motivation, life circumstances and capacity for independent scholarship.
