Our Bachelor of Education program gives students three stream options: primary-junior, junior-intermediate, and intermediate-senior. Upon applying for the program, students select one of these streams to indicate the focus they prefer. Primary-Junior education builds skills for teaching young students in kindergarten to grade 6. Junior-Intermediate prepares candidates to teach students in grades 4 to 10. Intermediate-Senior focuses on teaching grades 7 to 12.

Each stream offers further specialization in the form of a cohort course in an area of interest to you. For students wishing to apply for the Master of Education program, the cohort portion can be used as credit for applying to the Master of Education programs.

Your program features Curriculum and Pedagogy courses in the core elementary curriculum areas designed to equip you with skills to deliver education effectively to young students in junior kindergarten to grade 6. For those intending to teach in French immersion schools, select the French option when you apply and ensure you meet the French admission standard.

Cohort Details

The Bachelor of Education program has changed from a one year, full-time, on site program to a two year, full-time, on site program. This new structure provides students with more time to learn, apply and hone the basic and advanced theory and skills in the classroom and in the real world during practicum terms. This gives you a robust toolkit of skills and experience to demonstrate to employers. Click the button to learn more about the practicum portion of our program.

Even though we have changed the length of our program we have not made any adjustments to our admission requirements. We are looking for bright, well-rounded students with a passion for teaching and education. Please review the general admission requirements as well as those related to your specific program stream of interest. You are also invited to join us at one of our many Information Sessions.

The yearly tuition for students entering the two-year program will be similar to the existing tuition. The only difference is that the tuition amount will be paid in each of the two years of the program. The exact yearly tuition amount is decided by the University and will be published in July 2015.
