About

Adult Education is a diverse field of practice, research and scholarship that focuses on how adults learn and how to facilitate that learning. Students in the Adult Education program of  University of the District of Columbia develop the ability to teach adults, and/or plan adult learning experiences; 

Overview

Adult Education program of  University of the District of Columbia reflects national and local trends in adult education, and aligns with characteristics of Andragogy (theory and practice of educating adults).  It is designed to customize learning to your specific learning needs using self-directed learning strategies that include learning plans and self-assessments.  

Key facts:

The curriculum embeds workshops and seminars that are conducted by trained professionals.  The subdivision of core courses into 1-credit modules, allow students to tailor their learning and adult educators to meet professional development requirements for job effectiveness and recertification (for which 90 PD hours are needed every four years).  It uses the cohort delivery model—students go through the program as a group, and courses are scheduled sequentially—with admissions to the program in the Fall semester only.

Programme Structure

The Master of Arts program offers:

  • Master of Arts in Adult Education (36 graduate credit hours).
    Tailored to the distinctive learning needs of adults, this program is designed to be a natural transition from the Graduate Certificate program with which it shares core courses and features.  Up to 21 of the credits earned in UDC’s Graduate Certificate program are transferable, within 5 years, to the MA in Adult Education.
  • Professional Development TrainingThe subdivision of core courses into 3 one-credit thematic modules sets the stage for students to customize learning plans to their specific needs.  The incorporation of seminars/workshops on contemporary Adult Education issues (such as 2014 GED Blueprint, Common Core beyond K-12, CASAS and other assessment standards) conducted by faculty and other authorities in the field, provides adult educators the necessary academic training to satisfy professional development and/or recertification requirements.
