The Bachelor of Education (BEd) program at Crandall University is one of the most respected teacher preparation programs in Eastern Canada. A Crandall Education degree prepares you to teach in virtually any classroom, anywhere.

The goal of our Bachelor of Education program is to graduate teachers who will become student-centered educational leaders with a commitment to the important mission of educating generations to come.

Upon successful completion of the Bachelor of Education degree, you will be well prepared to take on teaching challenges in a broad range of classroom settings. You will also be eligible to apply for a New Brunswick Level 5 Teaching Certificate, which equips you to teach in the elementary or secondary school classroom.

Program Highlights

  • Education professors stay abreast of current literature and methodology discussed in professional journals so our students learn the very latest techniques and approaches.
  • Students learn to use the latest classroom technology including such resources as digital document cameras and infrared classroom sound amplification.
  • The program includes 17 weeks in the classroom – 2 weeks of observation and 15 consecutive weeks of actual teaching experience. Students complete their first semester course work before they are in a classroom so they can get maximum benefit from their observations.

Career Outlook

Graduates of our program have gone on to teach in public schools, community colleges and at international institutions. Many pursue advanced degrees at graduate school.
