Program description

MA Adult Learning and Global Change

Governments all over the world are urging citizens to train and educate themselves in order to stay competitive in a connected world. Critical discourses on globalization require the ability to learn in situations that span vast cultural and geographic divides. Our program is for those who wish to understand adult learning in the framework of global change within a unique digital learning format that has won international acclaim.

Online learning and master thesis

This master’s program enhances students’ ability to work in a globalising world and to challenge the traditional perspectives on globalisation. Our program is an equal collaboration with the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada and the University of Western Cape, Cape Town, South Africa. All course activities will be done within a digital learning platform, where you will learn together with students from the partner universities in a global class, making the program truly international. The courses contain topics such as locating oneself in global learning, adult learning: contexts and perspectives, global/local learning, and understanding research.

Our graduates are able to learn and teach globally, use global connective technologies, understand knowledge-based societies and their implications for learning, understand globalisation discourses, develop cultural sensibilities and sensitivities and develop an equality perspective for learning and reframing their own professional practices. They may also continue their academic careers in further projects.
