This Bachelor of Education program at the University of Prince Edward Island is designed to provide the variety of courses and extended field experiences through which students can develop the knowledge and skills needed to teach in the modern classroom.

Overview

We asked our Bachelor of Education program at the University of Prince Edward Island students why they decided on UPEI for their BEd degree. The responses fell into three main categories:

  • The ability to complete the degree in 12 months
  • International, Indigenous, Adult Education study foci
  • Program reputation and quality

These responses illustrate the strengths of our BEd program and the multiple options available to our students. One student stated, "UPEI is one of the most forward-thinking universities in Canada offering a BEd... Choosing UPEI is a no-brainer," and we tend to agree.
