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 Division of Medical Education. 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
