About

The mission of the Adult Learning and Education graduate program at the University of British Columbia is to contribute to the creation, elaboration, exchange and application of knowledge concerning the education and learning of adults in diverse contexts.

Overview

The Adult Learning and Education (ALE) program at the University of British Columbia is the oldest graduate adult education program in Canada with historical roots in traditions of social welfare, community development and extension education. ALE is concerned with the development of scholars and practitioners who will shape society in ways that promote lifelong learning for all. 

Features

Our ALE program challenges students to understand the diverse contexts in which adult learning occurs and their role in these from a wide variety of theoretical, conceptual and philosophical perspectives.

The M.Ed. program is considered a professional degree for people who wish to work as practitioners in any adult education setting, most often as instructors, program planners, consultants or administrators.
