Master of Education in Curriculum Studies for Health Interprofessionals
Acadia University's Master of Education in Curriculum for Health Interprofessionals is a Curriculum Studies program specifically designed for educators and administrators from health fields. Our program is a collaboration with Dalhousie University's Continuing Professional Development division. This program is primarily a face-to-face offering with only a small component offered online.
In this part-time program, you'll enhance your skills in teaching, planning, and delivering courses. You will explore classic and contemporary theory and research in curriculum studies to become a more critical, reflective educator.
Our 2020 cohort is being planned to start in September 2020, and finish in July 2022.
In our Health Interprofessionals program, you will:
- Study in a classroom setting that is typically offered as a weekly evening session at Dalhousie University. Select course components are available online.
- Advance through the program in a cohort group scheduled part-time over two years. You will complete your courses together in a specified sequence.
- Join a cohort group in a proven program that welcomes health educators and administrators from a variety of fields. We feel that professional diversity in our cohort group is a strength, and it encourages lively discussion.
