Director's Welcome

On behalf of the faculty and staff at the School of Education, welcome! We are proud of our School. It is home to over 300 students and to 30 full and part time faculty from a variety of academic and professional backgrounds. We feature small classes and rich interaction between students and faculty. Our Bachelor of Education program is a challenging mix of on-campus learning and in-school practicums. We offer this program through a 16 month (May-August) offering or a two year more traditional offering. Our Master of Education programs support on-going learning opportunities for in-service educators and focuses on Inclusive Education, Curriculum, and Leadership. We have a vibrant and nationally accredited Master of Education in Counselling – which is intended for teachers pursuing a career in school counselling and others pursuing a career in counselling through various agencies. We also are part of the Nova Scotia Interuniversity Doctoral Program in Educational Studies helps talented scholars develop rich knowledge and advanced research skills so important in today's rapidly changing world.
