Master of Education

Do you want to expand your teaching career options and get ahead with a master's degree in education? Are you thinking about working in educational leadership or research?

The flexible delivery options available through TRU's Master of Education (MEd) mean that you can take your master's courses online, on campus or a combination of both, on a part-time or full-time basis.

The MEd is designed for Canadian and international professionals who want to progress into leadership and research roles within the education, health care, private or government sectors. Courses in several areas of study are available and you can complete the program through a capstone, final project or thesis.
