Master of Education in our School of Graduate Studies

The Master of Education (MEd) program is designed to prepare educational leaders for learning environments such as classrooms, schools and other learning organizations. The program is ideal for education, healthcare and other professionals.

(Please carefully review the document above as the learning outcomes for each program are different).

The program is offered on a full-time and flexible full-time (flex-time) basis. The flex-time option is intended to allow working professionals to be engaged in continued employment in areas related to the fields of research. The Master of Education program is designed to be completed online and all MEd courses are offered online. Students may have the opportunity to register in select interdisciplinary on-campus courses at Nipissing University but these offerings are not guaranteed. The full-time MEd Program is a two-year program. Students in the flex-time option may complete within 3-4 years.​
