Bachelor of Education - Secondary Program

The Secondary Education program offers a sound mix of skills, developed within the context of a caring community that blends theory with practice. Because this program has a maximum enrollment of 35 students per year, you will receive personal attention from your professors, including practicum supervision.


"This is one of the best programs out there!  It definitely prepared me for an amazing career that I was so blessed to be  hired right out of graduation.  The professors are SO amazing...  The program created the opportunity for us, as a cohort, to get to know each other really well... King's definitely stood out to me.  Do it!! You'll be glad you did."

Secondary Program Overview

The secondary education program highlights 18 weeks of teaching practicum. During this period, students will have the opportunity to start up new semester courses, and spend four weeks of 100% teaching time in the classroom.  During the month of January you will take curriculum and instruction classes in your major and minor subject  teaching areas. In the second term you will take week long modules on various aspects of the secondary curriculum taught by master teachers currently in the school system. 

Graduates from our program consistently rank among the best teachers in the province. They are eligible to receive professional teaching certification from Alberta Education and are qualified to teach in junior/senior high school classrooms in Alberta, Canada, and around the world.
