Our masters programs attract students from different backgrounds (teachers, administrators, engineers, managers, health professionals) and provide you with the knowledge and skills to create transformative learning opportunities in any professional setting.

Flexible and Diversified Master's Programs

Whether you’re coursework or research oriented, choose from flexible concentrations and online options that allow you to earn your degree while balancing other commitments, guided by top-notch professors and professional support staff committed to your success.

Four masters options are available at the Faculty of Education:

You may choose from the asynchronous coursework only MEd degree option to complete the program in 12 months, through asynchronous/synchronous online or hybrid, as well as in-person course offerings. Or you may want to dive into research by completing a research project (MEd-MRP degree option) or even a final thesis (MA degree).

A recent CIBC World Markets report identifies Education as one of seven top yielding master’s degrees in Canada, with an average earning premium of 86%.

Note: Our graduate programs do not lead to a teaching certificate that allows you to teach in Ontario's English-language elementary and secondary schools.
