Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Our Mission

In collaboration with community partners, the Faculty of Education prepares educational leaders who inspire lives through learning.

Program Overview

Laurier’s Faculty of Education offers a Bachelor of Education degree integrating theory and practice to develop teachers for a changing world. Our program includes diverse courses and substantial practical experience in partner schools and alternative placements, both locally and globally. Laurier’s Bachelor of Education program is highly respected based on a professional development school model of reciprocal learning among teacher candidates, associate teachers and school administrators.

Laurier’s interdisciplinary Master of Education program provides educational leaders and professionals from a wide range of employment fields with an advanced and integrated conceptual understanding of the relationship between educational theory, practice, and reflection. The Master of Education, Student Affairs Field allows candidates to focus their studies related to educational theories and practices with a specific focus on student affairs and services at the post-secondary level.

We also offer undergraduate courses within a Teaching Option and Education Minor, along with additional qualifications courses and numerous community-outreach programs for teachers, children and families. We are proud of our Centre for Leading Research in Education, extensive community partnerships, our vibrant student community and our growing alumni network.
