Teacher Education at UVic

Teacher Education

Welcome to the Department of Curriculum and Instruction. Many of you will recognize this department as the consolidation of several smaller units from within the Faculty of Education into one of the largest academic units on campus.

We take pride in our diversity while celebrating our shared commitment to education and public schooling. We offer graduate degrees MEd, MA and PhD, and our undergraduate courses are a large part of both elementary and secondary Teacher education programs.

Curriculum and Instruction is one of UVic's largest departments. The interdisciplinary climate of the department appeals to a broad range of students. We continue to provide leadership and service to the faculty, universities, and other professional and research organizations.

Our programs

We're proud of our array of undergraduate and graduate programs that span a wide range of learning. The inclusion of such breadth facilitates the accommodation of diverse student interests and goals within the interdisciplinary climate of the department.

Collectively we are devoted to educational scholarship and reflection that emphasizes the convergence of theory and practice. We strive to provide a solid foundation for a wide range of interests amongst our students who come from across the spectrum of educational communities.
