About the Master of Education

The University of Manitoba, Faculty of Education has been serving the needs of graduate education since 1936. Since then over 3,000 students have graduated from our Master of Education program. On average, our annual MEd student enrollment equals 350 students.

Our specializations are flexible and offer students the opportunity to complete their MEd on a part-time basis. As an added benefit, numerous courses are available in the evening and during the summer months.

The Faculty of Education is known as an advanced educational research institute. Approximately three-quarters of Education’s full-time faculty members are engaged in research through the auspices of major funding bodies such as the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) and the National Sciences ad Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). Thanks to the support of these funding agencies, many of our graduate students have had the opportunity to study and work with faculty members who are actively engaged in research.

Please note: Completing a Master of Education program at the University of Manitoba does not qualify you for teacher certification. In order to obtain a Manitoba teaching certificate, students must normally be a graduate of a Bachelor of Education program in Manitoba, and their credentials are then individually assessed by the Professional Certification branch.
