The study of Education at the University of Winnipeg blends theoretical knowledge with classroom practice in order to prepare students for a professional teaching career. Students in the Education program take courses from a variety of disciplines such as history, philosophy, biology, sociology and psychology alongside courses that focus on curriculum and pedagogy. The Education program at the University of Winnipeg is unique for several reasons. First, in addition to the preparation of preservice teachers leading to provincial certification, the program provides an additional focus on urban inner-city education. Second, early in the program students are provided with the opportunity of working with teachers and children in classrooms. This enables students to begin the transition from university student to professional educator early in their university career. Finally, the program provides considerable opportunities for interested students to participate in community outreach projects and on-going faculty research.

The Faculty of Education prioritizes equitable access for all students. Should you identify any accessibility-related barriers, please contact or 204-786-9491
