About our degree:

Mount Royal’s Bachelor of Education — Elementary (B.Ed) is unique in Alberta for providing students with direct entry into the four-year degree program. This means you don’t need a degree or prior post-secondary coursework to be considered for the program. And, starting in your first year of study, you will gain extensive hands-on experience in elementary school classrooms — experience that continues during each year of the program.

The B.Ed. — Elementary is taught by a committed group of full-time and part-time faculty. All full-time faculty members hold PhDs, and have extensive K–12 teaching experience.

We value innovative teaching practices that push beyond the ordinary, including digital, arts-based, and experiential learning.
