Program Description

The master program of study in Adult Education is designed in order to accept adult educators, instructors, and trainers as well as any other professionals that educate and train adults from different subject matters and fields. The program is developed having in mind the continuous and increasing complexity and demands of the adult educator profession regardless of field and specialization.

Additionally, various other elements were taken into consideration when designing this program of study. First of the all, the fact that the adult educators work in various educational learning environments/settings: formal, informal and non-formal. Secondly, there is an urgent need for an overview critique of the basic concepts and principles of adult education in macro-level and/or micro-level.

Additionally, the program is designed in order to incorporate the effective integration of new and innovative teaching methods, techniques and policies as well as the use of technology in modern learning environments.
