I am interested in eventually managing an adult education program, through something like a college or community-based organization. What are some pathways for getting there?

Given that this is my interest, I'm interested to know what degree programs, internships, teaching experience, program experience, etc. would put me on a path towards being an "Adult Education Specialist," "ABE/GED Program Manager," adult literacy "Program Director," etc. I'm interested in long-term, career positions--not just an AmeriCorps job, which seems to be common.
If it is any help, I've been accepted into the UNC-CH MSW program, and am weighing whether this would assist me on my journey. I also have a couple of years of past professional experience working with an adult literacy program, both as program assistant and then as program coordinator. I have intermediate Spanish skills. I'm still in my 20s.
