Wings-Adult Education

What makes you strong?

At Meredith, we know strength has little to do with age – and everything to do with determination. And while it’s never too late to achieve your goals, even the strongest woman can use a little help to reach her full potential.

That’s why we created Wings, an adult education program for women. You'll build on your knowledge, experience, and strengths as you choose from more than 80 majors, minors, and academic programs. And as a Wings student, you'll receive the direction and challenges you need to help you soar. So whether you’re seeking your first college degree or pursuing your next career, Wings at Meredith will make you even stronger.
