Master of Adult Education (Online Program)

The Master of Adult Education (M.Ad.Ed) online program at St. Francis Xavier University focuses on the links between theory and practice in a variety of sectors that involve adult education and learning, including community contexts, community colleges, and the health sector, among others. The 10 courses will concentrate on adult education for those interested in teaching and learning in these various settings. Courses will be presented in a combination of synchronous and asynchronous formats, and time frames (late afternoon, evening, and some weekends). Starting in September 2022, the 30-credit Master of Adult Education program offers several options, including:

• a course-based option (ten 3-credit courses)

• a thesis-based option (six 3-credit courses plus a 12-credit thesis)

Students planning to pursue further studies should consider the thesis-based option.
