University of Manitoba, Master of Education
Adult and Post Secondary Specialization
University of Manitoba, Faculty of Education
The Faculty of Education has a long history of graduate education, going back to 1936 when the first Master of Education (M.Ed.) was awarded. Since then, nearly 3,000 students have graduated from their graduate programs. In a typical year, 350 students are enrolled in their M.Ed. program and 60 students are enrolled in their Ph.D. program. One considerable benefit of their graduate programs is flexibility. Consequently, 86 percent of their students choose to complete their M.Ed. on a part-time basis while working in the field as teachers, administrators and consultants.
Adult and Post-Secondary Education Specialization
This specialization is designed to serve the professional needs of a diverse group of students in continuing, workplace and professional education development; college teaching, administration and student services; university teaching, student services, and administrative management; local and international community development, program delivery, and administration.
Every applicant must complete an application package, which includes a variety of documentation such as: a letter of introduction explaining their interest in a particular field of study, two letters of reference, a current resume, an application form, an application fee, and official transcripts. Admission is through the Faculty of Graduate studies. This degree will require a minimum of a 120 credit hour Bachelor’s degree.
The Master of Education (M.Ed.) program consists of 30 credit hours of course work (10 courses), in the Course-based route. This format is consistent with most non-thesis M.Ed. and will include a final comprehensive exam. A Thesis-based route is also an option that requires 18 credit hours of coursework plus a thesis.
This unique program offering uses a cohort format for the delivery which means that a group of 20-25 students would begin the program together and progress through it together, over the two and one-half year period. This provides a consistent support group of students throughout the program.
Typically the courses are delivered on the RRC campus by University of Manitoba faculty. They will be offered one night each week during the regular Fall and Winter terms. The Spring courses will be offered two nights a week over a shorter time period. Summer courses when offered, have been offered in a condensed format over the middle two weeks of July, with classes on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of each week.
