The Bachelor of Education (Intermediate/Secondary) Conjoint with the Diploma in Technology Education is a program designed to prepare both Intermediate/Secondary and Technology Education teachers. Students in the program will complete a number of courses that address the development of basic skills and competencies in a variety of technological areas and how to apply them through design and problem solving processes in a school classroom/laboratory setting. All students attend full-time and should graduate in four semesters. This conjoint program is designed to provide students with an early field experience, a sequenced set of courses prior to a full semester internship and a range of courses after the internship designed so that students can reflect on their school experiences and make further connections between theory and practice.
Consideration will be given to the courses for which students are registered at the time of application. Refer to the Application Deadline Dates table for application deadlines. Students attending institutions other than Memorial University of Newfoundland must supply transcripts indicating Fall semester grades no later than February 1.
