The Master's Studies in Lifelong Learning program prepares students with knowledge and skills to take leadership roles as lifelong educators. Graduate students benefit from small classes, knowledgeable instructors, hands-on experiences, and an exciting curriculum.
Whether interested in supporting learning in formal education institutions, families, communities, or workplaces, students find this program rich, engaging, and pertinent. Students come from many different educational and work backgrounds.
The common denominator is that they are interested in how learning occurs across the lifespan. Often they are currently involved or would like to become involved in teaching other adults.
A graduate degree in lifelong learning will provide you with a wealth of academic knowledge and research that will be effective in the workplace, and best-practice methods for sharing information with others, and more – including:
Students in the program gain practical experience through a practicum. The practicum is a full unit course that allows students to take some of the concepts, theories, and ideas that they have learned in the program and put them into practice.
Over the course of two semesters, students will work with their practicum instructor and a mentor at their practicum site to develop and carry out a “hands-on” project that fits with their particular interests.
The practicum requires approximately a hundred and fifty hours of work, is voluntary (so no payment can be received for this work), and is usually done with a community organization.
However, sometimes it is done in the student’s place of work, provided the practicum tasks are clearly above and beyond the work that they would be paid for.

Students conditionally admitted to a graduate program of study, who have an IELTS score between 6.5 and 6.9 or the equivalent, will be required to successfully complete the Graduate Preparatory Program (GPP).
The GPP is designed to ensure that incoming graduate students have a high level of English language proficiency and a strong orientation to Canadian academic culture.
The GPP consists of an intensive term-long 15 hour/week program offered by the International Education Centre (IEC) and an undergraduate academic course.
The course is determined by the Graduate Admissions Committee for the student’s intended program of study and indicated on the student’s data form. This course is normally taken concurrently with the IEC program.
Students admitted to the Master of Arts in Education program will possess a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent with a minimum overall average of B (GPA 3.0).
All students should also demonstrate a commitment to studies in lifelong learning in their professional or community roles and work. MA candidates should demonstrate advanced research and writing competencies.
Candidates may be asked to submit academic writing samples to verify adequate preparation for MA work.
