Master of Education (MEd) Courses

Interested in trying a few MEd courses before you decide to apply to the program? To help you decide, you can take up to seven Open Learning courses (excluding counselling, capstone, research or thesis), as long as you meet the MEd admission requirements. These requirements include previous completion of an undergraduate degree with a GPA of 3.00 in the most recent 60 credits taken.

All MEd courses are paced and have a specific start and end date. Start dates are usually in September, January and May, subject to availability. Registration deadlines apply. Campus courses are offered evenings, weekends and throughout the summer.

To see in what semesters both online and on-campus courses are offered, refer to the chart MEd Course Offerings. Course numbers ending in 0 indicate a TRU on-campus course; those ending in 1 indicate an Open Learning course.

If you have attended or are attending another post-secondary institution, please submit either official transcripts or a letter of permission from all post-secondary institutions where you have received academic credits. Transcripts must be sent directly from the issuing institution(s) to TRU's Graduate Admissions Office.
