Master of Education Programs Overview

CityU in Canada offers two Master of Education (M.Ed.) programs designed to help working teachers upgrade their skill set and reach their career goals.

  • M.Ed. in Leadership
  • M.Ed. in School Counselling

All programs are taught by leading Canadian practitioners in local districts throughout the province. The programs are tailored for teachers who want to pursue a M.Ed. degree while continuing to work full-time.

The M.Ed. programs:

  • Meet the Teacher Qualification Service requirements for public sector teacher pay scale increases in British Columbia and Alberta
  • The MEd in School Counselling meets the course requirements for B.C. Association of Clinical Counsellors registration as a registered clinical counsellor (R.C.C.)
  • Help to prepare teachers for educational leadership and/or school counselling positions in the British Columbia and Alberta public or private school system
  • Provide an excellent opportunity to learn as a cohort in a professional learning community
  • Both programs are structured around
    • (a) foundation courses that focus on professional growth and developing research skills
    • (b) core courses on interpersonal skills and understandings of school leadership and functioning
    • (c) program-specific courses
  • Include mentored internships that provide opportunities to put theory into practice

Typically, students complete the 52 credits over a period of two years. Please note that the MEd in Leadership and School Counselling is designed for school-based practice and does not prepare graduates for clinical mental health practice. If you are interested in pursuing a career as a clinical counsellor the Master in Counselling program is the path to take.
