The Master of Teaching program (for elementary and secondary) is one of the premier teacher education programs in Canada, combining a Master of Teaching degree with elementary or secondary teacher certification. Our program is suited for those who want to pursue a career in teaching combined with graduate study that may lead to a doctoral program. Students will choose one of three program specializations (divisions): Primary/Junior, Junior/Intermediate or Intermediate/Senior.

The Master of Teaching is a graduate level teacher education program offered through the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) at the University of Toronto. All OISE graduate studies programs operate under the umbrella of the University of Toronto School of Graduate Studies. So all applicants must utilize the University of Toronto School of Graduate Studies online application system to apply for admission to an OISE graduate studies program.
