Bachelor of education
This 16-month, post-degree program you’ll participate in extensive practical experience including two school-based practicums, a community field experience, a 15-week internship, and many other place-based learning opportunities that are reflective of this territory and the histories and aspirations of Indigenous peoples of this land.
Our master’s programs provide opportunities for educators to further develop specialized areas of interest and integrate their practice and understandings within a framework of educational research and inquiry. Students select courses across different course areas to cultivate an expertise of their own.
Doctor of education
This three-year flexible learning degree is designed to inform, empower, and engage current and aspiring leaders.
