Located in Toronto, Ontario, the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto is an international leader in the research, teaching and study of issues that matter in education. For more than a century, we have participated in the transformation of education in Ontario through the teaching of teachers, research, graduate studies, and through our leadership in educational policy and its impact on practice around the world.
Areas of Expertise
In 2015, OISE will become an all-graduate institute of teaching, learning and research. There is a strong and increasing demand for OISE’s distinct graduate programs in teacher education. Candidates in OISE’s Master of Teaching (MT) and Master of Arts in Child Study and Education (MA-CSE) programs undertake advanced study in the educational sciences and at the same time meet the requirements for licensure to teach in Ontario. Graduates of these programs become advanced practitioners and experts in the education field and many go on to assume leadership positions, not only in education but also in healthcare, government and the private sector.
MASTER OF TEACHING IN ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION: The Master of Teaching program is one of the premier teacher education programs at OISE. This program combines a Master of Teaching degree with elementary or secondary teacher certification. Our program is suited for those who want to pursue a career in teaching combined with graduate study that may lead to a doctoral program. Students will choose one of three program specializations (divisions): Primary/Junior, Junior/Intermediate or Intermediate/Senior. | MASTER OF ARTS IN CHILD STUDY AND EDUCATION: This program combines a Master of Arts degree with elementary teacher certification. It is designed for students who wish to pursue a career in evidence-informed teaching of children from JK to Grade 6 and graduate training that may lead to a doctoral degree. Options within the program allow students to focus on areas such as special education or early year education. Our well-prepared graduates have benefitted from two years of practical experience in classrooms, including a placement in our exemplary onsite Laboratory School.
