Distance and mixed delivery programs
The EPLS department currently offers community-based MEd programs in Counselling to cohorts of professionals in education and other fields. Delivery formats and program lengths vary. There will be two summer sessions at the university, with some programs requiring three consecutive summers at the UVic. Delivery is mixed, blending face-to-face and online instruction, and facilitating internship work and project research. Students work on their projects in their home community over the winter months.
Programs are initiated as a result of local needs communicated to the Faculty of Education by interested individuals. They provide a wonderful opportunity for learning and advancing careers in the supportive environment of colleagues with similar and diverse backgrounds.
