This fall marks another vibrant and successful season for Acadia's Master of Education programs.
Through our efforts in support of the Acadia University School of Education, new this year are Curriculum Studies cohorts in Music Education and Creativity. The Music Education program is specifically focused on the needs of music instructors, with dedicated cohorts available for teachers practicing at elementary and secondary levels. Meanwhile, our new Creativity program adopts contemporary theories to help teachers design engaging, meaningful classroom experiences that place creativity at the centre of the curriculum.
We are also happy to welcome new cohorts of students in a number of existing programs. These include the new Counselling cohort for the Chignecto-Central Regional School Board which started in September in Truro, as well as collaborations with several other Maritime universities. The Curriculum Studies for Health Interprofessionals program, which also began a new cohort in September, continues our collaboration with Dalhousie University's Division of Medical Education. In collaboration with UPEI's Faculty of Education, the first PEI-based Master of Education in Counselling began in July, with a dynamic group of Counselling students taking Acadia courses at UPEI's campus in Charlottetown.
