Bachelor of Education - BEd Saturday Option

Home > Education > Bachelor of Education > BEd Saturday Option

Earn your BEd with classes held one day per week

Crandall University’s Bachelor of Education is one of New Brunswick’s best teacher training programs, and is now offering a flexible delivery option for students who want to pursue the degree while working. This program offering is the same as our current BEd program, but classes are held only one day per week. Crandall’s BEd Saturday Option is an excellent choice for anyone who is interested in 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, the Bachelor of Technical Education may also be pursued.


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.
