LLEP PH.D. PROGRAM CONCENTRATIONS
The field of study in Adult Learning at the University of Connecticut prepares professionals to support the learning needs of adults in a wide range of settings. For nearly 30 years, we have dedicated our research to better understanding how adults learn and to advancing practices that enhance adult learning.
Graduates have a strong theoretical foundation and an empirically validated set of best practices enabling them to design, facilitate, and evaluate learning opportunities for individuals, communities, and organizations.
The Leadership & Education Policy Concentration prepares individuals to embark on careers as professors, researchers, policy analysts, and educational thought leaders. Students receive rigorous methodological training coupled with deep exploration of key substantive issues. In addition to completing required coursework in educational leadership and policy, students are encouraged to take courses in their area of interest offered by other departments and schools.
