Adult Learning and Education
Master of Education
At Educational Studies we are not just a community of professors, instructors and students working in isolation on obscure academic projects that few people can relate to. In fact, our work deeply and directly affects people and communities both locally and globally. Whether it’s working with farmers in Afghanistan or collaborating with Indigenous communities, the people of EDST are dedicated to a better world through education. Although our work varies widely, scholarship and teaching within EDST generally includes:
