Program information

The Indigenous cohort is comprised of the same courses as the TRU BEd program, but students in the Indigenous cohort take three courses (EDEF 3100, 3200 and EDFN 4200) with only the Indigenous cohort and an Indigenous faculty member teaching it. Indigenous worldviews and perspectives are honoured with support from the Indigenous community at TRU.

There are learning opportunities for practicum placements in Indigenous schools and also working with Elders.
