UPEI is a place where people really matter, where ideas are actively sought and valued, and where community connections enrich life on campus. Our Faculty of Education students have many options to broaden their understanding of themselves and the world in which they live. Students in the Faculty of Education are encouraged to think critically and creatively about the purpose and practice of education in local communities and global society. Our professors recognize that a supportive and inclusive learning environment cultivates a healthy spirit of enquiry in our students. The close rapport between students and professors is often cited as the most valued aspect of a student’s experience in the UPEI Education program.
Areas of Expertise
We admit approximately 75 students to our two-year, post-degree program each year. Our graduating teachers are highly sought after by schools on Prince Edward Island and across Canada—especially in rural schools, and across the Northern territories—as well as internationally.
The faculty also offers a two-year BEd français langue seconde, and a four-year bachelor of education specializing in human resource development, in collaboration with Holland College, designed for those wishing to teach adult education.
