Spécialisation conjointe Éducation, francophonies et diversité offerte par le CREFO

Les cours de la spécialisation conjointe ont pour but d’examiner, dans une perspective multidisciplinaire, les réalités éducatives et sociales propres à la francophonie locale, nationale et internationale. Les connaissances acquises permettent de développer chez les étudiantes et les étudiants une perspective critique en ce qui a trait aux grandes questions de l’heure dans le domaine de l’éducation et d’acquérir une solide formation à la recherche. Les étudiantes et les étudiants admis dans un programme de maîtrise (MEd ou MA) ou de doctorat (PhD ou EdD) dans les départements de Curriculum, Teaching and Learning (CTL) ou de Social Justice Education (SJE) peuvent s’inscrire à la spécialisation conjointe.
