Our masters programs attract students from different backgrounds (teachers, administrators, engineers, managers, health professionals) and provide you with the knowledge and skills to create transformative learning opportunities in any professional setting.

Whether you’re coursework or research oriented, choose from flexible concentrations and online options that allow you to earn your degree while balancing other commitments, guided by top-notch professors and professional support staff committed to your success.

What are your options?

Four masters options are available at the Faculty of Education:

  • Master of Education (MEd) - Coursework option
  • Master of Education (MEd) - Online Coursework option 
  • Master of Education (MEd) - Major Research Project option 
  • Master of Arts in Education (MA) 

You may choose from the asynchronous coursework only MEd degree option to complete the program in 12 months, through asynchronous/synchronous online or hybrid, as well as in-person course offerings. Or you may want to dive into research by completing a research project (MEd-MRP degree option) or even a final thesis (MA degree).

A recent CIBC World Markets report identifies Education as one of seven top yielding master’s degrees in Canada, with an average earning premium of 86%.
