Why study Education at Bishop’s?
The Bishop’s School of Education offers a two-step track leading to Elementary or Secondary teacher certification, as well as different options for graduate studies.
As a teaching and learning institution, the School of Education works in collaboration with the greater educational community, and is dedicated to developing reflective and exemplary educators. Our graduates are prepared to assume leadership roles in education as a result of theory- and practice-oriented courses founded on the principles of equity, responsibility, and respect for individual dignity.
In the School of Education, we combine hands-on, real world experience with challenging and stimulating coursework in subjects such as linguistic diversity, multicultural education, and individual differences, giving you the tools you need to teach locally – and around the world.
Bishop’s University’s graduating teachers are highly prized and sought out by school boards who know our reputation – built over the School of Education’s 117-year history – for preparing leaders with deep understandings of pedagogy, curriculum, and the skills to build student success.
Equity and social responsibility
Our program is built on the principles of equity and social responsibility and a commitment to the transformative power of teaching. We equip professionals with the thorough understanding and practical knowledge they need to change lives.
We approach teaching as so much more than a job or a skill: we know it’s a vocation, an art, and a science based on ongoing research. We build your knowledge base in your teachable discipline, in child development, in curriculum and in the most current research and social issues.
