|Description:||We are one of the largest and oldest graduate programs in Adult Education, and we enjoy an international reputation for our critical and interdisciplinary approach to the field. Our multi-disciplinary program develops community capacities and mobilizes leaders and organizations concerned with justice, equality and sustainability. As such, the program offers courses in four broad areas of emphasis designed to demonstrate the range of learning available to students.
Our program structure ensures excellence in student experience by ensuring exposure to both the breadth of the field and providing students with the opportunity to develop an in-depth focus. The program is one of a kind in combining adult education with community development, giving it a mandate that emphasizes enhancing ties to external communities, both locally and globally. The PhD degree program is designed to provide opportunities for advanced study in the theoretical foundations of adult education and community development and in the application of such knowledge to practice. The Adult Education and Community Development program offers both full-time and flexible-time PhD options.
