Adult Education


Adult Education is a diverse field of practice, research, and scholarship that focuses on how adults (16 years and older) learn and how to facilitate that learning.  Students in the Adult Education Certificate program develop the ability to teach adults, plan adult learning experiences, guide communities in capacity-building, and foster learning for advocacy and action in a variety of settings. This guide provides our recommended resources to completing research in this program.
