What will I learn?

Acadia’s full-time Bachelor of Education (BEd) program is offered in either a 16-month-consecutive or a traditional two-year format. It offers rigorous training to provide you with the broad skill-set needed to teach young children, or the subject-specific expertise required to help students attain more advanced levels of education.

Society will always need teachers and those with the skills an education degree provides, so no matter the economic climate, training as a teacher will render you highly employable. Beyond the classroom, education careers are available in management, administration, research, and counselling roles. A background in education can also be useful for those who work with youth, or generally sharing knowledge. Examples include exhibition curators, community youth workers and social workers. All of these fields offer you the chance to help improve education systems and processes as each adapt to changes and rise to challenges.
