Master of French Education (MEd)

The program is offered jointly by the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research, the Faculty of Education and La Cité universitaire francophone.

The Maîtrise en éducation française (MEd) is a program that is pertinent to teaching in French in a minority setting.

 

Within the MEd, there will be two intensive courses offered on-campus during the summer. Students will then take at least one on-campus or online course throughout the fall and winter semester, with the option of taking one course in the spring semester. Once the course requirements have been completed, students may begin their project or thesis.

All teaching and submission of documents will be in French.

Students will benefit from close relationships with their colleagues and professors, as well as personalized guidance. Linguistic and financial support is also available.

Courses in French are available through the following institutions, thanks to the Consortium des établissements universitaires de l’Ouest canadien (www.medouest.ca):

  • University of Regina
  • Université de St-Boniface
  • Campus St-Jean (University of Alberta)
  • Office of francophone and francophile affairs (Simon Fraser University)

The Consortium offers a unique opportunity to learn and share with students from other institutions.
