M.Ed. Program

Full standing is granted to those applicants who have successfully completed an undergraduate degree and have adequate background in learning and development-related courses in Psychology, Anthropology, Education, and/or related disciplines (e.g., Social and/or Health Sciences).  No thesis is required.

Note that students with no course in research methods prior to starting the M.Ed. will be required to take EPSE 481 (3) Introduction to Research in Education. This course does not count towards your program, and ideally this should be taken early in their program.
