Off-Campus B.Ed and Certificate Programs

 

The St FX Faculty of Education is committed to providing programs for underrepresented groups in the province of Nova Scotia. In addition to our on campus programs we also fulfill this commitment through our off campus programs.

Currently we have begun a Bachelor of Education program for African Nova Scotian pre-service teachers with a province-wide cohort. Courses are being offered on weekends and evenings through a combination of face-to-face and online learning. We are also in the final year of a Bachelor of Education program for Mi'kmaw Nova Scotians with courses being offered in Membertou.

Through discussions with educators, administrators, and School Boards from a number of band schools and also with leaders from Mi'kmaq Kina'matnewey, we are providing a Mi'kmaw Language Certificate Upgrading Program for current Mi’kmaq speaking teachers in the area of Mi’kmaq language curriculum and pedagogy. This program will be completed in the spring of 2011.
