This concentration is designed to provide opportunities for teachers of young adolescents to explore how classrooms and schools can become more responsive to the needs of these young people through rethinking curriculum, assessment and school organization.
Note: The Education of Young Adolescents Concentration is under review. Specific updates will be available online when approved. Please consult with the program head.
Minimum requirements for admission to the program are a bachelor’s degree and evidence of one-year successful teaching experience (or equivalent).
A BEd or its equivalent is also required for those teaching in the public school system. Those involved in education other than in the school system do not require a BEd for admittance to the program and are encouraged to apply.
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.
