Social and Psychological Foundations of Education is a non-degree, service-focused department committed to the study of teaching and learning through insights gathered from a number of disciplines.
Faculty members come from within diverse academic disciplines traditionally associated with educational foundations and are committed to high-quality instruction, service, and scholarship that examines the role of education in bringing about progress and democratic participation in our society.
Courses are grounded in educational foundations and are guided by developmental sciences, critical analysis, and social and political action.
The Adult Education program teaches those who help adults improve the way they live and work through advanced learning. We prepare adult educators to teach their specialty in community colleges; to work in community engagement projects; to conduct literacy, personal development, and workforce-preparation programs; to prepare adult educators for work in grassroots movements and social justice efforts; and for careers in organizational training and development/human resource development.
Students enrolled in our program enjoy the flexibility of online classes—accommodating full- and part-time students located anywhere in the world—and work closely with faculty advisers to select specialized courses to meet their career goals. The Adult Education Department was listed by Campus Explorer as one of the Top 10 Graduate Schools for Adult and Continuing Education and Teaching!
