Adult Education and Community Development

Program Coordinator: Professor Bonnie Burstow

The Adult Education and Community Development program is an intellectual hub for teaching, research and outreach on adult and community learning. We believe that learning is transformative, holistic and life-long. The program is multi-disciplinary and makes innovative contributions, in theory, policy, research and practice, to critical and lifelong adult learning in local, national, and international contexts.

Educational Leadership & Policy 

Program Coordinator: Professor Scott Davies

Focusing on elementary and secondary education, the Educational Leadership & Policy program is devoted to the study and development of policy, leadership, change, social diversity, and ethics and values. A combination of theory and practice assists students to develop skills, enabling them to cope with the complex demands of current education policies and procedures.

Higher Education

Program Coordinator: Professor Creso Sa

This is the study of universities, community colleges, and other post-secondary institutions. Focus is on the relationship between these institutions and the broader society in which they operate, and the nature of what takes place inside these institutions. This program is also for those who choose to learn about higher education from an international, comparative perspective.

Collaborative Specializations

Our three Collaborative Specializations provide students with exposure to cross-field and cross-disciplinary approaches to educational problem framing, and problem solving to broaden the possibilities for innovative and effective interdisciplinary analysis.

Certificate Program

Non-degree programs and certificates are offered to meet the needs of practitioners and scholars in the field of higher education, such as: Postsecondary Certificate in Leadership in Higher Education.
