Students who complete the Bachelor of Education degree will be well-prepared to teach in today's inclusive learning environments. Through a common set of courses, students will earn minors in both inclusive education and integrated instructional design. With practicum experiences in different contexts each year, including a full-term practicum, students gain a deep understanding of educational theory, Indigenous perspectives, and professional practice. After their First Year Studies, students choose an Early Years (K - 4), Middle Years (5 - 9), or Secondary Years (10 - 12) specialization for their curriculum focus. Four foundational principles (Relationships and Community; Foundational Knowledge; Bridging Theory to Professional Practice; and Social Responsibility and Inclusion) are emphasized throughout the program to ensure that graduates will meet the Alberta (2018) Teaching Quality Standard (TQS) and enter their teaching career equipped with the knowledge and skills to design high-quality, socially responsible, and authentic learning opportunities that meet learner needs.
