    Question for the distinguished members of the board...

    Much has been discussed about the necessity to have at least 18 hours in one concentration to be considered for work as an adjunct, but does the name of the degree matter? For example, Amberston University offers a 36-hour MA Professional Development. Core requirements consist of 6 hours, the remaing 30 hours can be chosen from one or more concentrations. So at least in theory, someone could have a MA Professional Development with 30 hours in Management, or 30 hours in Business Admin, or 18 hours in Business Admin an 12 hours in Management, etc.

    How would schools view something like this?

    It all depends on how you present it. Perhaps you could list an "MA Professional Development with a concentration in Management". I think most look for the experience first then the supporting documents.

    Good idea. Maybe I could even shorten it further: MA Professional Development/Management

    I don't think the name of the degree matter as much as the content of the program. Most of the time you are required to send a copy of your transcripts before you are hired. If the content matches their needs, you will be considered.

    You can just put in your resume "MA, Management Concentration"
