You can choose from three Master’s programs: the applied (non-thesis) Master of Education, the Master of Arts in Education, and the Research Master of Arts. Learn about our program options »

A Flexible Learning Environment
At the Mount, we are committed to providing our students with flexible and accessible learning options. We understand that you may be working, studying full-time, or balancing the demands of your family, your career, and your education, and we’re ready to help you succeed. We welcome both full-time and part-time students.
As a full-time student, you can complete the graduate program
requirements in as little as one year. Part-time students generally
finish their studies in two years, but if you need a little more time,
you can take up to five years to earn your Master's degree in our
on-campus programs. If you enroll in one of our off-campus cohorts, your program will take two years to complete.
Whether you’re in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia or Mississauga, Ontario, you can apply to enroll in one of our cohorts. Depending on the needs of particular groups, we also offer cohort programs in other Atlantic Canadian locations.
Usually, our cohorts take their classes together in a planned program tailored to the group’s particular needs. Many of these cohorts are structured to accommodate teachers and other professionals who work full-time. These part-time cohorts can be completed in two years. Find out about cohorts in your area ».
Our graduate programs will help you to become an educator, or prepare you to focus your existing teaching career on literary education. Graduates of our programs are working as classroom and community teachers, literacy tutors, program developers and supervisors, resource specialists, consultants, administrators, scholars, and university and college instructors.
