Educational Studies (MA/MED)

Course Description

The MA program in Educational Studies is a department-wide thesis based program that can be completed full-time over a two year period or part-time over a longer period.

MA students can focus their studies in one of four MA concentrations:
- Adult Learning and Education (ALE)
