The University of Manitoba, Faculty of Education has been serving the needs of graduate education since 1936. Since then more than 3,000 students have graduated from our Master of Education program. On average, our annual MEd student enrolment equals 350 students.

About

Our specializations are flexible and offer students the opportunity to complete their MEd on a part-time basis. As an added benefit, numerous courses are available in the evening and during the summer months.

The Faculty of Education at the University of Manitoba is known as an advanced educational research institute. Approximately three-quarters of Education’s full-time faculty members are engaged in research through the auspices of major funding bodies such as the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) and the National Sciences ad Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). Thanks to the support of these funding agencies, many of our graduate students have had the opportunity to study and work with faculty members who are actively engaged in research.
