La reprise d'études universitaires : logiques institutionnelles et restructurations existentielles

Abstract : The aim of this research consists of studying the role and social function of adult education at university level. This study can be divided into two: on the one hand one should understand first of all the role of the university in history of adult education. We shall analyze the specificity of this institution within its current policies to be able to place it in the general context of French education since the 1971 law of Delors. On the other hand one should study the grounds for which adults go back to university studies. Four different reasons lead to the social conditions of life, thus allowing the interpretation to the resumption of studies as a biographic form of "conversion" or of "rupture". in all cases these reveal individual quests of new socialization. to conclude, the results of this study show that the social function of adult education at university level leads to the types of logics: a logic of "professional legitimation" extending the perspective of social promotion which originates from the law of 1971, and a logic of "biogragic regulation" which plays a role in helping in the existential restructuring which no other institution can take on.
