Program information

At UOIT, graduate programs in Education are designed specifically to prepare future leaders and specialists in learning and technology. The Master of Arts (MA) in Education, Master of Education (MEd) and Graduate Diploma in Education and Digital Technologies are unique and at the leading edge in both their objectives and approaches to learning online. The programs deal with the most recent issues around the interactions between digital technology and education, and the professors approach these issues using techniques that favour collaborative learning, co-construction of knowledge and peer tutoring. The field of Education and Digital Technologies within the MA, MEd and the Graduate Diploma builds on the institutional strengths of information and communication technologies at UOIT.

Students enrolled in all graduate programs in Education will take their courses completely online, which includes weekly video conferencing meetings.

Admission requirements

In addition to the general admission requirements for graduate studies at UOIT , MA, MEd and Graduate Diploma in Education and Digital Technologies applicants must meet the following program-specific requirements:

  • Hold either a four-year honours degree from a Canadian university or a three-year university degree plus a Bachelor of Education degree or its equivalent from a recognized institution.
  • Overall academic standing of at least a B (GPA: 3.0 on a 4.3 scale), with a minimum B in the last two full-time years (four semesters) of undergraduate work or equivalent.
  • If applicable, a minimum score of 580 on the paper-based TOEFL, 92-93 on the Internet-based TOEFL or 7 on the IELTS. Note that these English language proficiency scores are slightly higher than those required for some other graduate programs at UOIT. Visit the English language proficiency  section of this calendar for additional details.

Please note that an admission interview may also be required.

Part-time studies

These programs are particularly well suited for candidates holding part-time or full-time employment who wish to pursue studies in education at the graduate level on a part-time basis. Not only do all courses make use of web-based tools for information and communication in the usual manner, but students also meet with their colleagues and professors on a regular basis using a powerful and user-friendly videoconferencing system. All meetings are scheduled during weekday evening hours. Since all meetings can be conducted online, students can complete the entire program from home, eliminating time and distance constraints.
