The application period for Trent University’s new Masters of Educational Studies (M.Ed.) program – the only program of its kind in the region – is now open and all interested future M.Ed. candidates are encouraged to apply to become part of the inaugural class, which begins in July 2015.
“We have a strong faculty who are eager to begin working with our first cohort of students,” said Dr. Cathy Bruce, director of the Masters in Educational Studies program. “In the program we have faculty from a range of disciplines across Trent. With this wide range of expertise, we can offer students many personalized options and possibilities to study educational contexts and curricula both broadly and deeply.”
“As the only program of its kind in the Peterborough and Kawarthas region, the new M.Ed. program will help meet the demands of entire community, appealing to nurses, psychologists, as well as educators and many others interested in education,” added Dr. Jacqueline Muldoon, dean of the School of Education and Professional Learning at Trent. “The program is part-time and will be attractive to people who have work, home and community responsibilities and who are interested in furthering their education.”
The M.Ed. program plans to take up to 25 students in this first cohort. The portal for applications is now open and closes on February 1, 2015 and applications are already coming in.
Petra LeDuc, a full time educational consultant, has expressed her interest in the program: “I have heard that Trent’s master’s program will have core courses to set the foundation, and then I am able to customize the program to my needs. As a curriculum leader, this is a great fit for me and I am prepping my application over the December break.”
