Why UBC Okanagan Education?

An outstanding teacher education program is more than a collection of buildings, timetables, and textbooks. Its real strength lies in its history. We believe that the highly motivated faculty, staff, students, and community members at UBC Okanagan create an environment that fosters academic excellence and personal growth.

Teaching is one of the most honourable professions in society: Educating the minds and hearts of children prepares them to become responsible global citizens and stewards of the world. Our faculty members share in this role of cultivating understanding and knowledge. They create inclusive learning environments for prospective teachers, and for practitioners to deepen their inquiry into teaching and learning while advancing their credentials.

At UBC Okanagan, the Bachelor of Education invests in theory-practice connections, offers extensive practical experience, and fosters professional learning throughout one’s career. Our students study and practice-teach in a beautiful, four-season setting, where class sizes are small and professors know their students by name. By participating in the UBC Okanagan Bachelor of Education, you will engage in experiences both inside and outside of the classroom that inspires students to think critically and creatively throughout their lives.

The landscape of education is changing. New teachers need to be responsive to diverse learners in diverse contexts. Join our community and engage in collaborative learning with instructors, classmates, educations, and community partners.
