Program Details

Those choosing to pursue the Curriculum Studies MEd program at University of Saskatchewan will be encouraged to focus on aspects of praxis leading to expertise and leadership in that area.

Who would be interested in an M.Ed. in Curriculum Studies? Anyone participating in teaching in its various forms – in the K-12 system, the post-secondary system, and informal education – who wants to study one or more aspects of curriculum, such as research, development, implementation, evaluation and leadership for change.
