Elementary Focus

Applications for the on-campus program are now being accepted for the elementary program and for all secondary specializations for the 2022/2023 academic year.  Please contact us if you have inquiries regarding the on-campus program.

 

We are currently offering off-campus Bachelor of Education programs in conjunction with the South Shore Regional Centre for Education and the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional Centre for Education.  We are also currently completing a Bachelor of Education degree in cooperation with the Chignecto-Central Regional Centre for Education.  These programs are a one-time offering and would only be repeated if we receive a request from the sponsoring regional body.  Please contact us if you have inquiries regarding the off-campus programs.
