What kind of teacher will you be?
The Consecutive Bachelor of Education program combines attention to individual learners in small class settings with a community-based approach. The School of Education works in close collaboration with Trent University's Faculty of Arts and Science and with educators in the wider community.
Through their university credits in foundational and curriculum courses, students are exposed to recent advances in theory and research. During their classroom placements they are encouraged to use this expertise to think critically about their own professional practice and to develop a professional identity through attention to individual needs, multiple modes of learning, human diversity, and critical thinking in content areas.
Programs of study are offered in full-time format, for students interested in teaching at the Primary/Junior level (K-Grade 6) and at the Intermediate/Senior level (Grades 7-12).
The program is two years in length, running from late August until mid-April each year. Teaching subjects at the Intermediate/Senior levels include: Biology, Chemistry, Dramatic Arts, English, Environmental Science, French as a Second Language, Geography, Health and Physical Education, History, Mathematics, First Nations, Metis, and Inuit Studies, Kanien'kéha (Mohawk) & Anishnaabemowin (Ojibwe), Physics and Visual Arts.
