About the Faculty of Education

The Faculty serves approximately 2,000 students enrolled in undergraduate, graduate and professional development programs. The Faculty is organized into three departments and the School of Information Studies. In addition, the Faculty has a number of research and service centres, several of an interdisciplinary nature.

Like other faculties of education in Quebec and Canada, the Faculty has had a traditional role in the initial training of teachers and leaders in education-allied occupations. It is also concerned with constructing knowledge through research and scholarship and with providing professional development services to the wider educational community.

In recent years a number of links have been established with counterparts in other countries for teaching, research and development purposes. Current active projects, some of which involve students as well as staff, include those in Japan, Indonesia, South Africa and Mexico.
