Adult Education and Organizational Development

Total semester hours: 36

This specialization focuses on the knowledge and skills needed to contribute to the development of organizations through change. While such work may call for traditional training at times, more often it focuses on facilitation of groups, internal and external consulting, and the use of intervention tools. The professionals for whom this program is appropriate include learning center directors, human-resource and organizational development professionals, performance technologists, performance consultants, and performance coaches. Students apply their work in the program to real-life work sites and may use their own work sites for this purpose.

Qualified candidates must be engaged in a work setting in which their role focuses on assisting others to learn and develop their skills. Candidates complete four of the core requirements for the Master of Arts as well the Adult Education core courses and elective courses focusing on Organizational Development.
