The Faculty of Education is excited to welcome all new students to the University of Lethbridge. Our faculty and staff have been working tirelessly behind-the-scenes. We have adapted to the current remote situation and look forward to seeing you, advising you, and guiding you on your journey!

You (and maybe your parents, too) have likely done some research before deciding upon becoming a teacher. Perhaps you have discovered that the U of L teacher education program is known for its extensive field-based component. You will receive 27 weeks of practical classroom experience in a broad range of schools from rural to urban and elementary to secondary. You will develop a strong knowledge base in the subject area you intend to teach. You will also receive in-depth preparation in how to teach—including both general and subject area instructional methods. You may choose from a wide variety of subjects by which to develop a major and other areas of expertise, and you may also specialize in areas such as Technology or Inclusive Education.
