Education At Crandall
The Bachelor of Education program at Crandall University is one of the most respected teacher preparation programs in Eastern Canada. A Crandall Education degree prepares you to teach in virtually any classroom, anywhere.
The goal of our Bachelor of Education program is to graduate teachers who will become student-centered educational leaders with a commitment to the important mission of educating generations to come.
Upon successful completion of the Bachelor of Education degree, you will be well prepared to take on teaching challenges in a broad range of classroom settings. You will also be eligible to apply for a New Brunswick Level 5 Teaching Certificate, which equips you to teach in the elementary or secondary school classroom.
You may choose from two Program Options:
You may pursue your Bachelor of Education in one of two ways:
Consecutive – You will complete four semesters of teacher education after you have completed your undergraduate degree (B.A., B.B.A. or B.Sc.) or equivalent.
Concurrent – Taken at the same time as your undergraduate degree (B.A., B.B.A. or B.Sc.), this approach requires a minimum of 5 years to complete both degrees. If you wish to pursue the concurrent program, you should apply during the second semester of your first year at Crandall.
Special Program Highlights for a Bachelor of Education
- Our Bachelor of Education graduates hold a strong reputation around the world. Often they are specifically requested for internship placement in places such as China and Australia.
- Education professors stay abreast of current literature and methodology discussed in professional journals so our students learn the very latest techniques and approaches.
- Students learn to use the latest classroom technology including such resources as Smartboards, student response systems, digital document cameras and infrared classroom sound amplification.
- The program includes 17 weeks in the classroom – 2 weeks of observation and 15 consecutive weeks of actual teaching experience. Students complete their first-semester coursework before they are in a classroom so they can get maximum benefit from their observations.
