Our Bachelor of Education program admits students with a prior university degree and trains them to teach in the elementary or secondary school stream. This is a 60-credit hour program and graduates are eligible to be certified to teach in the Nova Scotia public school system.
Students entering the elementary stream should have courses in fundamentals of English, Math, Social Studies and Science, as well as a course in Developmental Psychology. Secondary applicants should have 30 credit hours in a first subject area and 18 credit hours in a second subject taught in the public school system.
