Program Description:

The objective of the Queen’s Master of Education program is to develop in its graduates leadership, initiative, and a creative approach to teaching and administration through critical reflection and research and development activities. Toward this end, the program allows for three broad areas of investigation: a focus on students, a focus on classrooms and teachers, a focus on the social context in which the others operate, or an investigation of the intersection of any of the three. The fields of study offered are: cognitive studies, cultural and policy studies, and curriculum studies. The program is designed for students with a three-year undergraduate degree plus a Bachelor of Education degree or its equivalent, with or without professional experience, as well as graduates of four-year Bachelor’s Honours degree programs or its equivalent who have two years of professional or industrial experience related to the field of Education. For example, psychology graduates may choose to pursue a M.Ed. in the field of cognitive studies; sociology graduates may choose cultural and policy studies; and mathematics graduates may opt for curriculum studies. This program is offered both full-time and part-time.
