Bachelor of Education - BEd Saturday Option

Home > Education > Bachelor of Education > BEd Saturday Option

Coming January 2022

Crandall University is excited to announce that as of January 2022, a new Bachelor of Education delivery option will be available for students looking to pursue a career in education. This program offering is the same as our current BEd program, but will allow students to attend classes one day per week. This option is ideal for our working students, who are looking at enhancing their education but cannot complete the program in a traditional model.

Program Highlights

  • Students will take two (2) courses at a time on Saturdays.
  • Each course runs for eight (8) weeks, followed by a two-week break.
  • Classes run on Saturdays from 8:00am to 11:45am and then from 12:15pm to 4:00pm.
  • The program will include a practicum (this will follow our standard 4-month internship experience).
  • Program duration: 24-months + 4-month practicum.
  • Application requirements will be the same as our current BEd program.
  • The program is geared towards Elementary Education; however, Secondary Education and the Bachelor of Technical Education may also be pursued if warranted.


Is this program considered full time or part time?

This is a full time program

Can I take some courses with the Saturday Option and others on the traditional schedule?

Unfortunately not; however, special permission for individual courses may be granted in exceptional circumstances.

Can I complete a BTEd with the Saturday Option?

Students interested in Technical Education can complete nearly all of their program requirements with the Saturday Option; one additional required course may need to be taken at an alternative time.

Can I continue working full time during the internship period?

Your internship practicum is equivalent to a full time job during regular school hours. It is not possible to maintain full time work while participating in the internship.

Who will be teaching the courses on Saturdays?

Courses will be taught by a mix of full time faculty and part time adjunct professors, the same as our traditional program.

If I have a local permit, can I get paid during my internship practicum?

No. The Department of Education does not allow interns to be hired on a local permit or work as a supply teacher during their internship.
