Programs of Professional Development

The Faculty of Education offers programs of professional development in several fields. All such programs are 30 credits, unless otherwise indicated, and may be completed through part-time study. They are intended to provide an opportunity for teachers and other educators to enhance their existing knowledge and skills or to develop new ones, and thus are normally available only to those who are already certified as teachers.
