Participate in an intellectual community designed to promote critical and creative thinking about contemporary educational issues.

Masters’ programs in education offer educators the opportunity to develop specialized areas of interest and integrate their practice within a framework of research and inquiry. Programs are designed for classroom teachers, subject-area coordinators, educational administrators and educational researchers in non-school settings.

Through the Master of Education and the Master of Arts, educators, practitioners and researchers have several options to deepen their understanding of education and advance their careers at UBC Okanagan.

Graduate students work together with their supervisors to design programs that uniquely meet their interests and goals by choosing courses that cut across our four themes of study: Curriculum, Digital Learning, Diversity, and Educational Leadership and Policy (see below).

These programs do not carry credit toward certification to teach in public schools in British Columbia.

Graduate courses are scheduled to work around the schedules of practicing teachers. Most classes are held on Saturdays, weeknights and during the summer months, so you won’t need to take time off work to attend seminars.


Both the Master of Education and Master of Arts in Education are 30-credit degree programs, and each provide students with theoretical, practical and analytical expertise, as well as a place in a community of scholar-practitioners dedicated to the study and pursuit of lifelong learning.

Students who feel that they might — at some future date — be interested in enrolling in a doctoral program are advised to follow the MA route rather than the MEd route.

The Master of Arts in Education (MA) degree is primarily for educators who wish to develop their expertise as educational researchers in addition to their interest in a thematic area of study.

The MA degree is designed specifically as a research degree, with students required to carry out and complete an independent research project (master’s thesis). Completion of a master’s thesis is viewed as a prerequisite for the pursuit of doctoral studies in most institutions.

The Master of Arts in Education can be completed on either a part-time or full-time basis. Students are encouraged to complete the coursework over two academic years, including summer sessions. MA students are required to complete the degree within five years.

Students must complete:

9 credits of core courses: CUST 562, EDUC 500 and EDUC 521;

15 credits from one or more thematic areas (may also include EDUC 501 or alternate course as approved by the Director of Graduate Programs in Education); and

a thesis (EDUC 599).
