This study lists 451 master's and 106 doctoral adult education theses completed in Canada, up to and including 1980. Section 1 overviews the purpose and procedures for data collection. Section 2 shows 326 master's theses completed at seven universities from 1960-1977. Names of the authors/researchers are listed alphabetically and followed by the type of degree program, title of thesis, university where the research was undertaken, and year in which the research was completed. Section 3 lists 61 doctoral dissertations completed within three universities from 1967-77. Authors/researchers are listed alphabetically, and each name is followed by type of degree program, title, university, and completion year. For most of them some brief analysis is done on basic research methodology, focus of study, and method of data gathering. Section 4 is an index to 648 descriptive terms used in the theses' titles. Section 5 is a supplement that includes (in three separate listings) 14 master's theses completed prior to 1978 and 106 master's and 45 doctoral theses completed from 1978-1980. The thesis work reported comes from 11 universities--four more than in the main report. The list of doctoral theses is not annotated; no index of descriptive terms is provided. (Eleven tables summarize the data, including theses completed by year and university.) (YLB)
