Boozhoo, Bienvenue et Welcome researchers, education leads, trainers and managers, to the traditional territories of the Three Fires' Confederacy of First Nations, which includes the Ojibwa, the Odawa, and the Potawatomie. 

The Masters of Education (MEd) degree will assist you in moving your professional practice as a teacher, a vice/principal, or a staff trainer and manager further.

The Joint Ph.D. offers a unique opportunity to proceed through the program based on individualized plans of study facilitated by both face-to-face and online program delivery.

We invite you to submit an application to the program that best suits your graduate study needs. Hundreds of MEd and PhD graduates would agree that this is a positive first step to a rewarding graduate study experience. We look forward to hearing from you.
