Bachelor of Education

The Acadia University Bachelor of Education is a 60 credit hour post baccalaureate program, which may be completed over two academic years or 16 consecutive months.  It offers both Elementary and Secondary streams. Our program is designed to provide initial teacher preparation consistent with the needs of today's professional educator.  The Elementary program offers a specialist area in music education (two-year program only) and is designed to give elementary school teachers a strong background in inclusive education. The Secondary program offers specialist areas in both music and technology education (two-year program only) and is designed to prepare students to teach in two subject areas in secondary schools.  It also has an inclusive education focus intended to equip graduates to meet the needs of individual learners. 

The Acadia Bachelor of Education Program has three distinctive features:

1. Preparation for leadership and excellence in teaching in educational settings which reflect the increasingly diverse nature of the public school population.

2. Eighteen to twenty weeks of supervised field experience including select opportunities for national and international field placements in the second year.

3. The integration of information technology within the curriculum.

In keeping with our commitment to acknowledging the diversity of the school population, we encourage applications from members of racial, ethnic, cultural or other communities that are underrepresented in the teaching profession.
