Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and Educational Technology (MEd)

Within this program you will specialize in one of two areas of study: Mathematics and Science or Educational Technology.

The Mathematics and Science specialization is a project-based program designed to be completed while you work. This program will help deepen your understanding of mathematics and science. You'll join other experienced teachers and educational leaders as you study these topic areas in new ways.

The Educational Technology specialization is a project-based program designed for educators, learning support staff and administrators at the K-12 or post-secondary level. This program is for those looking to develop competencies in integrating technology to enhance and transform teaching and learning.

Note: we are not currently offering a Social Studies cohort for this program.
