The Faculty of Education offers a number of Institutes in Education. These are intended primarily to provide opportunity for teachers to gain knowledge of new approaches to the teaching of existing school programs and to gain insight into aspects of new programs as they are introduced in the school system. These Institutes normally carry six or nine credit hours. Students who enrol in Institutes of six weeks duration or less will not normally be permitted to register for any other courses. Additional information on Institutes may be obtained from the Faculty of Education. Not all Institutes are offered every semester or summer.

NOTE: Students wishing to enrol in Institutes should contact the Office of Undergraduate Student Services.

In accordance with Senate's Policy Regarding Inactive Courses, courses which have not been offered in the previous three academic years and which are not scheduled to be offered in the current academic year have been removed from the following listing. For information about any of these inactive courses, please contact the Dean of the Faculty.
