Although the United Nations has declared education a human right, many children do not have access to education, let alone a quality education. The Faculty of Education strives to address this issue through continuously working with educators, conducting relevant research, and shaping the teachers of tomorrow.
With a degree from the Faculty of Education, graduates can teach at any Manitoban K-12 grade classroom and in many classrooms throughout the world. The meaningful skills acquired through an education degree can also lead graduates to careers outside of the classroom. The Faculty offers programs at the bachelor, post-baccalaureate, master, and doctorate levels.
