Master of Education
At Acadia, you'll enjoy a different and more personal experience than you'd find at a larger university. You'll grow as an educator in a welcoming, technology-oriented learning environment, where you'll be supported with personal and responsive client service. You'll have a unique opportunity to form close working relationships with your instructors and your fellow students. We'll challenge you with innovative, critically responsive teacher education that will foster your academic achievement and personal development.
Our Master of Education programs are designed to meet the needs of working professionals, with full- and part-time options, summer courses, local on-site programs, online courses, and independent student options.
- Choose from program options including Counselling (full-time or part-time), Curriculum Studies, or Inclusive Education.
- Part-time two-year cohorts in Curriculum specializations Music Education, or for Health Interprofessionals are generally offered every couple years, and a new specialization focused on Outdoor Learning Across the Curriculum will be starting in July 2023!
- Our part-time MEd in Inclusive Education (Equity and Social Justice) program launched in July 2022, and plans are well underway for the 2023 cohort that would start in Summer 2023.
Local, on-site cohorts can be offered in collaboration with regional centres of education (recent cohorts included concentrations in Literacy and UDL). Students can consider Thesis or Project options, and cohort study is generally paired with summer courses at the Acadia University campus in Wolfville.
Consider beginning as an Independent Student if you cannot commit to a full MEd program. You can take up to four courses as an Independent Student before applying for admission to one of our programs.
