Faulkner Birmingham has been helping adult students earn degrees and advance their careers in Alabama’s largest city for more than 70 years and is a proud partner of the greater Birmingham area, which is well-known for healthcare, retail, entertainment and history. 

Amanda Gardner, a human resources graduate, was scared to go back to school because she felt she had wasted too much time before returning to a classroom setting. 

Faulkner’s adult education program at Faulkner Birmingham features flexible 5 or 8-week evening class schedules that were perfect for Gardner’s work and family needs.

“It was actually exciting to go back. Faulkner felt like the right fit for me,” Gardner said. “I’ve been in administration a long time and I wanted to get a degree in HR for a long time to enhance what I’m already doing. Faulkner is the perfect place for someone who is mature in age and mind. With its class schedule, the classes are perfect for a working adult or a mom or single parent.”

Gilbert Mitchell came to Faulkner because he knew he needed more education to move forward at his current job and a degree could benefit his work in so many ways. Mitchell decided to pursue his Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA). 

After 50 years of putting aside his dream of obtaining a degree, he finally decided to give Faulkner a try. Faulkner was able to help him achieve his lifelong goal.

“The first thing I thought of when I was about to get my degree after so many years, was to be able to look at it on the wall and say, ‘I completed my degree,’” Mitchell said, smiling. “It took me 50 or so years, but I have my degree. Words cannot express how grateful I am.”

Faulkner Mobile has been helping adult students earn degrees and advance their careers for more than 30 years in Mobile, one of Alabama’s fastest growing major cities, known for its Southern charm, seafood and nearby beaches.

Charlena Cunningham decided to enroll at Faulkner because she wanted to expand her horizons. She wanted to make sure she could succeed in life and at her workplace. She decided to earn her BBA degree. 

“I love business and work in business now, so when I learned Faulkner was a private school, it was close to my home and convenient for me with a full time job, I came right over,” Cunningham said. 

What all the campuses share is a staff of faculty and professionals who care.  The warm, friendly reception each visitor receives from the campus staff is often the determining factor in a person’s choice to enroll at Faulkner.
