This study examines the current and planned status of opportunities of training for adult educators in the United States through programs especially designed to meet their needs, as indicated by the degree programs and curricula offered and projected by institutions of higher education. Following the Introduction (Chapter I), Chapter II presents a Review of the Literature on Training Opportunities for Adult Educators. Chapter III consists of a description of the procedures used in identifying the sample and in collecting the data. Chapter IV is a summary and listing of the data collected. Chapter V includes a comparison of the present and previous studies and also sets forth the authors' conclusions and interpretations of the data, as well as their suggestions for subsequent studies and procedures for maintaining current information on the degree training opportunities for adult educators. The instruments used in the data collection are included in Appendix A. The names and addresses of the directors of all programs from which completed questionnaires were received are shown in Appendix B. Appendix C gives the names and addresses of four persons who were admitted to membership in the Commission of the Professors of Adult Education and who are directors of additional programs not reported in the survey.
