Administrative history

Adult Education as a subject was first taught at the University of British Columbia in 1956. It was established as a department soon after, with programs at the Masters and Doctoral levels. In 1976, the Faculty of Education restructured to become a new Department of Administrative, Adult and Higher Education (AAHE). In 1995, it again restructured and became merged into the Department of Social and Educational Studies. Finally, adult Education joined a new department in 2003, that of the Department of Higher Education. The Department consists of Educational Administration, Higher Education, Adult Education, Native Education, Gender Studies, Multiculturalism and the Philosophy and History of Education. UBC courses in Adult Education are also taught at the University of New Westminster in Australia and online through the Department of Continuing Studies at UBC.
