BACHELOR OF EDUCATION




Established in 2003, Redeemer University College’s Bachelor of Education program is making a difference in the lives of children across Canada and globally. The Redeemer B.Ed. leads to provincial certification and provides the opportunity for graduates to teach in public, independent, and separate school systems. Our unique two-year education program grows out of a Christian perspective and provides significant opportunities for learning and practicing classroom skills.
 

Why should you consider earning your Bachelor of Education degree at Redeemer?

Here are a few highlights:

Christian Worldview

One of the key aspects of the Redeemer Education Program is our Christian foundation. We view teaching as a vocation, a special calling from God, as is reflected in our Mission Statement.
 
Small Size

Between 60-80 students graduate from the Redeemer Education Program each year. The emphasis on small class size provides significant opportunities for the faculty to support you in your teaching pursuits.
 
Teacher Assisting
This pre-practicum experience provides you with an excellent understanding of the full scope of what teaching involves.
 
Excellent Career Placement

At the Ontario College of Teachers review in December 2007, we were able to report that more than 90% of Redeemer B.Ed graduates are receiving work positions. This outstanding achievement includes full time contract teaching positions, Long Term Occasional (LTO) and supply work.  Take a look at Careers & Graduate Opportunities for more information.
 
Program Options

Redeemer offers you two distinct options for your Bachelor of Education:
  1. Concurrent (allows you to complete your Bachelor of Arts or Science degree and your Bachelor of Education at the same time, usually within 5 years)
  2. Consecutive (open to those who already have a recognized bachelor's degree and can gain a Bachelor of Education degree in as little as 3 terms)

Facilities

As an Education student, you will have access to a number of key facility resources. Beyond the university classrooms which provide an excellent place to learn, you can also take advantage of the private study rooms in the university library to prepare for presentations. Within the library, the Teacher Education Resource Centre (TERC) provides students with curriculum documents, teaching materials, children’s literature, a range of educational software, and a place to work with other Education students.

Visiting Opportunities

You're invited to visit Redeemer and tour the campus, meet with professors and get a feel for what it is like to be a Redeemer student.  Consecutive and Concurrent Education students are invited to register for a Campus Visit Day.
