|If your dream is having the opportunity to positively impact young lives and influence growing minds through education, the Bachelor of Education program at CBU will help you fulfil your true calling. In only 15 months, beginning each May, the 60-credit Bachelor of Education (BEd) program equips aspiring teachers with the critical skills, knowledge and experiences they need to become professional educators.
Applicants may apply to either the Elementary Education or Secondary Education stream, with each stream providing opportunities to apply relevant curriculum, instructional theory and methods for a career in education. In addition to its focus on education for sustainability, the program includes other unique opportunities, such as a service-learning project and a professionalism workshop series. During the program, students receive hands-on teaching experiences through 18 weeks of practicum experiences. Graduates of the program are eligible to apply for a Nova Scotia teaching license, along with licensing and employment for any other province, territory or international opportunity they choose to pursue.
