MAJ07067 Adult Education

The Adult Education major introduces students to an in-depth study of adult learning practice and traditions, approaches to program planning, adult development psychology, and education policy contexts.

In addition to the core areas of the program, students complete two electives chosen from the variety of subjects on offer across the MEd including educational policy, e-learning, educational psychology, popular education, research design and social change, and many others, to form a program of study to suit their professional development needs.

Students bring with them experiences gained from working in diverse settings ranging from public sector organisations, private enterprise, non-government and charity organisations, educational institutions and the broad health field and more. This breadth of practice and experience adds a richness to the program.

Upon completion, graduates are well positioned to be at the cutting edge of learning and change in educational, vocational, community and organisational settings.
