About MES

The Master of Education in Educational Studies is a part-time, cohort-based program for educational practitioners. Its goal is to develop educational leaders, administrators, and master teachers across the province. The cohort model offers significant flexibility in delivery through three-week face-to-face summer intensive coursework and online fall and winter classes. While open cohorts attract teachers from locations across the province, MES often collaborates with school authorities to offer on-site programming that fits the interests and needs of communities. For example, the MES recently partnered with Kee Tas Kee Now Tribal Council Education Authority (KTCEA) to offer programming through on-site summer institutes, remote learning, and community-related applied research projects.

As a part-time program, the MES enables you to complete your Master’s degree without taking leave from your career. Over the course of two years, you will develop skills to support Indigenous Language Revitalization and learn to apply them in your educational context. To optimize the learning experience, students in this cohort will be taught primarily by Indigenous faculty, focusing on Indigenous pedagogies and research methodologies.
