About

Our program prepares leaders who help adults improve the way they live and work through more effective instrumental learning, but we do not stop there. This Adult Learning and Leadership program is offered by Teachers College at Columbia University.

Overview

The M.A. program in Adult Learning and Leadership is structured around a sequence of core courses, research requirements, and electives.  In addition to three required Foundations courses, students may choose courses to take in the following areas: adult development; adult learning theory and applications; program development and evaluation; systems learning; leadership; strategy and management; human resource development; group dynamics; organizational behavior; technology; conflict resolution; and research. 

At least one course is to be taken in each of these twelve areas no matter what the degree level. Many of these courses are offered by the Program or the Department; other courses can be taken elsewhere in Teachers College or Columbia University.
