University of Calgary Calendar 2021-2022 Werklund School of Education 1. Summary of Degree Programs
1. Summary of Degree Programs

The Werklund School of Education offers five Bachelor of Education (BEd) undergraduate degree pathways:

  • Four-Year BEd
    • Fall-start on-campus pathway
    • Summer-start Community-Based blended delivery pathway
  • Five-Year Concurrent BEd
  • Two-Year After-Degree BEd for holders of approved degrees
    • Fall-start on-campus pathway
    • Summer-start Community-Based blended delivery pathway

All students in the Five-Year Concurrent BEd and Two-Year After-Degree BEd pathways must choose a route - Elementary route (kindergarten through grade 6) or Secondary route (grades 7 through 12) and a Teachable Subject Area. Students in the Four-Year Community-Based BEd pathway will be in a K-12 route and apply for ONLY a Teachable Subject Area, not a route. Students in the Four-Year BEd (On-Campus) pathway may declare a Route, depending upon desired Teachable Subject Area. Some Areas offer a K-12 focus. Students should refer to ‘Degrees Offered’, below.

PLEASE NOTE: Bachelor of Education degree pathways are offered on a full-time basis only. Part-time studies are not permitted without the express permission of the Associate Dean, and only under very exceptional circumstances.
