Bachelor of Education

The Faculty of Education offers initial Teacher Education leading to the degree of Bachelor of Education. Following completion of all requirements, teacher candidates are eligible to apply for the BC Professional Teaching Certificate. Program options (Elementary & Middle Years, and Secondary) build upon the academic and experiential background of teacher candidates by developing a commitment to inquiry and an appreciation of the value of research.

Continuing Professional Development

Opportunities for continuing professional development education are also offered. Students may undertake individual courses of interest or complete a series of courses leading to a Certificate or Diploma in Education. Diplomas are offered in a teaching discipline or in a related area. Individuals seeking to complete prerequisites for admission to a Master's program can do so through the courses offered individually or as part of Certificate studies. For information about specializations, admission, and application procedures, visit the Teacher Education website.
