Comparing an MEd Against MA & MT Degrees?

Master of Education (MEd) degrees are designed for professionals working in education-related fields. A Master of Arts (MA) degree is designed to provide opportunities for study, research, and theoretical analysis.

If you are looking for Teacher Education and a credential that leads to certification with the Ontario College of Teachers, then you should look at either the Master of Teaching (MT) or the Master of Arts in Child Study and Education (MA).

Spécialisation conjointe Éducation, francophonies et diversité offerte par le CREFO. (crefo.oise@utoronto.ca)

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 (M.Ed. ou M.A.) ou de doctorat (Ph.D. ou Ed.D.) dans les départements de Curriculum, Teaching and Learning (CTL) ou de Social Justice Education (SJE) peuvent s’inscrire à la spécialisation conjointe. 

The OISE Alumni Association (OISEAA) acts as the alumni voice on matters that affect our community. Together, we create the events and experiences that foster a lasting bond between alumni and alma mater. 

The OISEAA provides a meaningful volunteer experience in governance, planning and community building for its members. Over 100,000 alumni stand to benefit by developing and promoting themselves through OISE.
