Is the Community-Based Bachelor of Education (BEd) for you?

Students will have the opportunity to take the majority of their courses online and take field practica near their home communities.

The Werklund School of Education’s four-year Community-Based Bachelor of Education (B Ed) degree program is unique in Alberta. 

The program allows students in rural and remote areas to remain in their communities for the majority of their program, receiving excellent instruction and advisory support throughout.

Students accepted into the Four Year Community-Based Bachelor of Education (B Ed) degree program will be able to take courses through a blended learning environment, allowing maximum access and flexibility. 

Offering one to two courses on-campus each summer provides students with the opportunity to work with their cohort in a face-to-face environment, attend orientation and social events and to connect with the Werklund School of Education and the University of Calgary.

The four year Community-Based Bachelor of Education (B Ed) degree program provides greater flexibility for students moving from the workforce to school.  Students will have the opportunity to take the majority of their courses online and take field practica near their home communities.
