Education Careers

This two-year program is designed to prepare students for a career in education. Students learn about traditional teaching careers in elementary, secondary, and post-secondary schools, as well as explore pathways for special education, school psychologists, school counselors, school leadership, and more. Students learn about curriculum development, educational technology, educational theory, classroom management, and more. As part of the program, students will be immersed in experiences within the teaching profession. This is an excellent option for a student looking to hone in on the teaching specialty they wish to explore in their post-secondary education. View the program flyer.
