The Adult Learning, Training and Organizational Development program prepares students to master the skills to develop, deliver and evaluate education, training and organizational development programs, and support work organizations as well as nonprofit and community-based organizations through informed research and theory. This degree will prepare students to become leaders in education, training and development within organizational settings. This interdisciplinary program will equip students with the theory and practice to foster education, training and development of individuals, groups, teams and organizations in a variety of settings. Students will focus on the following areas:

  • Learning, training and development of adults in organizational settings
  • Group, team, leadership and organizational development and change
  • Organizational dynamics, conflict management, problem-solving and decision making
  • Research and evaluation
  • Field-based experience

Theories on advocacy, communication, conflict resolution, organizational dynamics and development can be immediately applied in public and private sector work organizations, as well as non-profit, community-based and for-profit settings. Classroom instruction and assignments draw on students’ experience along with training in conceptual, theoretical and methodological applications.
