Post-Secondary Studies

The Faculty of Education’s undergraduate and graduate level Post-Secondary Studies programs are multi-disciplinary in nature. The Post-Secondary Studies programs are designed to prepare students for a variety of instructional and leadership roles in informal and formal post-secondary education, including careers in academic, adult, community, technical and trades, and professional education. Students in these programs come from diverse backgrounds including administrative, academic, adult education, business, health, literacy, policy, student services, and technical and trades professions.

Post-Secondary Studies programs at the undergraduate level include the Diploma in Adult Teacher Education, the Diploma in Post-Secondary Education, the Bachelor of Education (Post-Secondary) as a First Degree, and the Bachelor of Education (Post-Secondary) as a Second Degree. A number of the undergraduate Post-Secondary Studies courses also form the basis for the Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Education’s Post-Secondary Instructors’ Certificate program.
