Acadia Master of Education - Teacher and Student

Undertaking a Master in Education at Acadia University is a different and more personal experience than can be found at larger institutions. At Acadia, you'll be immersed in a welcoming, technology-rich learning environment, and supported with personal and responsive client service. Our graduate students have a unique opportunity to form close working relationships with their instructors, fellow students, and other faculty in their program. We provide intellectually challenging, critically responsive, and innovative teacher education that fosters our students academic achievement and personal development.

Open Acadia, in collaboration with our Division of Research and Graduate Studies, supports Acadia's School of Education in providing full-time and part-time students with study options that meet their diverse needs. Graduate courses in education are offered as fall, winter, spring, and summer courses in locations around Nova Scotia (and beyond), and an increasing number are also offered as flexible online courses.

  • Program options include Counselling, Curriculum Studies, Inclusive Education, and Leadership; students may also select Thesis or Project options.
  • Cohorts are available in cooperation with school boards and selected institutions, and are combined with summer study at the Acadia campus.
  • By studying part-time, you can complete your extra years of education for salary advancement without giving up your summer or leaving home.
  • You can also apply for admission as an Independent Student; independent students can take up to four courses before applying for admission into a Master of Education degree program.
  • Progress in your degree with a selection of flexible online courses you can begin anywhere, anytime; the perfect option for studying during the school year.

Applications for a Graduate Education degree are made through our Graduate Studies office.  More information, including typical deadlines (note that specialized cohorts have  cohort-specific deadlines), is available, as well as Guidelines and FAQs.
