About the Faculty of Education

The Faculty comprises four academic units serving both undergraduate and graduate students. Faculty members not only teach within their respective disciplines but participate in a wide diversity of basic and applied research projects locally, nationally and internationally. Research initiatives inform our teacher training programs educating graduates who enter the classroom as teachers with current, relevant, and optimized professional skill-sets.

Links to our academic and professional units can be found in the footer at the bottom of this page.
