At the University of Pécs, Faculty of Humanities you may study Andragogy/Adult Education as a Single Honours degree. Our graduates develop their knowledge and skills through theory and practice in adult learning and education to achieve successful careers in adult and vocational education, work-place learning, second chance education with basic skills development, coaching and counselling, community education and community development, educational policy and research, international development and special education needs.
In case you apply, you will certainly learn about key issues of adult and lifelong learning contemporary societies are facing, such as participation/access, provision, equity, performance, equality, delivery/methodologies, inclusion as well as about education and learning in terms of its sociological, psychological, historical and philosophical aspects.
You will also meet different teaching, learning and assessment methods including lectures,
seminars, individual tuition, group-based, co-operative activities and individual and small group research projects. However, the learner-centred approach of ours result in reduced numbers of courses/semester with higher credit-rates so as to enable a deeper engagement in specific aspects of adult learning and education regarding, methods, contents, environment, policies, practices and international trends. Accordingly, your necessary skills, in the scope of communication, collaboration, adaptability with research and analysis, will be developed too in special forms of our program, based on practicality and usage.
Since the University of Pécs is an Erasmus-partner of some distinguished Universities across Europe to research, develop and innovate in the field of adult education/andragogy, enrolled students will be offered to participate an EU-funded international adult education academy (AEA) program in the second year of Master Studies so as to develop practical skills and knowledge together with students of partner universities to study adult education and lifelong learning in the countries represented in the program.
