Akdere, Mesut; Conceicao, Simone C. O.
New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, v23 n4 p38-50 Fall 2009
Due to recent changes in the workplace, the workforce and higher education have driven academic programs of adult education (AE) and human resource development (HRD) in the U.S. to become more integrated as part of the mission of institutions of higher education. In this exploratory study, existing graduate programs in AE and HRD in the U.S. were investigated based on the "Peterson's Graduate Schools in the U.S." (2006) to assess the current status of these academic programs in both fields. Results indicate that some of these programs already coexist and collaborate at the institutional level. Implications for the future of academic programs of AE and HRD are discussed.
