Graduate Programs in Curriculum Studies

We offer a non-thesis MEd program, a thesis-based MAEd program, and a research-intensive, thesis-based RMA program. 

Master of Education (MEd)

To earn the MEd, you must complete graduate courses. The Graduate Academic Calendar describes these requirements as 5.0 units of course work. One unit of coursework is the equivalent of one full-year course; 0.5 units of coursework represent a course that runs for one term only.

Please see the Graduate Academic Calendar for a full program description.

You may enrol in this program full-time or part-time. A student who is enrolled in three courses per term is considered a full-time student. Full-time students can complete the program requirements in as little as one year. Students have up to five years to complete the program requirements, but most part-time students finish the program in two years. Part-time students must register in at least two courses per year.

Master of Arts in Education (MAEd)

To earn the MAEd, you must complete eight graduate courses and a thesis. The Graduate Academic Calendar describes these requirements as 5.0 academic units. One unit of coursework is the equivalent of one full-year course; 0.5 units of coursework represent a course that runs for one term only. As part of these requirements, must research and write a 1.0 unit thesis. You will work with a supervisor with similar research interests to complete this thesis requirement.

A student who is enrolled in three courses per term is considered a full-time student. Full-time students usually complete the requirements within two years. Students have up to five years to complete the program requirements, but most part-time students finish the program in three to four years. Part-time students must register in at least two courses per year.

Research Master of Arts

To earn the RMA, you must complete 5.0 units of coursework and thesis. Your thesis must be at least 1.0, and no more than 5.0 units. (0.5 units is equivalent to a one-term course).
The RMA is a research-intensive program; you will spend a substantial amount of time researching and writing a thesis. You will work with a supervisor with similar research interests. Therefore, when you are getting ready to apply to the RMA program, you should consider the research interests of current faculty members.

The admission requirements to the RMA are the same as those to the MAEd in each program area.
