The Faculty of Education, Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) offers an Integrated Music and an After-Degree Program

(Note: the Integrated program is currently suspended)

After-Degree programs allow you to immerse yourself in the teachable subject areas that you desire to teach before you learn how to teach. This dedicated learning will make you a better-informed teacher in the classroom.

Focus on learning to teach specific age groups
The B.Ed. program offers stream options that allow you to choose the age group you want to learn to teach. We highly recommend that applicants gain some experience working with the age groups they think they want to teach before applying to a specific stream. For more information on each of the stream areas, select the links listed below.

It takes two years of full-time study to complete a Bachelor of Education (
part-time options are available, however, students have up-to six years to complete the degree part-time)

The Practicum (school experience)
While in the Faculty of Education, you will have the opportunity to apply your skills during your practicum in inner-city, suburban, rural, and/or international classroom settings with support from faculty advisors, professors, and your peers. These learning opportunities will provide you with the important experiences you need to begin a career as a confident and competent teacher.

Stream Options

Early Years (Kindergarten – Grade 4)

Early Years teachers are generalists and teach most of the subject areas. They also draw on the experiences of children to develop exciting learning opportunities.

Unique to the Early Years program is the considerable amount of time that students spend in the early years classroom outside of the practicum experience. This supportive delivery model accelerates student learning and better prepares students for a career as an Early Years teacher.

Middle Years (Grade 5 – 8)

Middle Years teachers are generalists and teach many of the subject areas, while helping students develop their individual strengths, as well as their roles and responsibilities within the school and community.

Middle Years teachers examine the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of adolescents.


Senior Years (Grade 9 – 12)

Senior Year teachers help their students establish their learning goals and vision for the future, while sharing the passion of their subject areas. Senior Years teachers play a major role in preparing their students for vocational training or post-secondary education opportunities.

Integrated Bachelor of Music / Bachelor of Education Program (currently suspended)

This program enables students with a music background to combine their love of music with studies in Education to become music educators in a minimum of five years.

Students interested in this program must first apply to the Faculty of Music before applying to the Faculty of Education.
