Information and Resources for Future Students

The University of Regina's Faculty of Education is seeking teacher candidates for our range of undergraduate programs and certificates. 

Teaching is an increasingly complex profession. Educators across Canada are finding themselves trying to maintain identities of teaching for justice, equity and sustainability amid increasing disparities of educational opportunities, resources and achievement among groups of children, youth and adults whose lives and backgrounds are often very different from their own, racially, culturally, linguistically, economically and geographically. Within this context, principles of social justice, diversity, equity and Indigenization serve as the foundation for all programs. Our aim is to prepare teacher candidates to become socially-just and equity-minded teachers who continue to learn and develop through professional inquiry, reflective practice, and collaboration both within and beyond the school community. 

We are committed to the work of anti-oppressive education and making the educational experience for all children and youth equitable and just.

Meaningful, Exciting Teacher Education

In today's schools, learning is beyond the classroom. The same is true of teacher education. You will spend time in the classroom, but you will also learn in varied environments through diverse field-related experiences. Depending on the program you choose,  our Faculty offers several opportunities to gain teaching experience, develop practical skills, and build relationships with peers including:

  • An eight-week school-based observation period in year one 
  • A  three-week pre-internship school placement in year three
  • A 16-week full-time teaching internship in year four 
  • An immersion year at Université Laval in Québec City (BAC program only)
  • A variety of course-based off-campus experiences where you'll learn in places away from the University 
  • Internship seminars where you'll work with teachers and other student colleagues

You will take many of your education courses with the same group of students, building life-long friendship that will serve as future sites for professional collaboration and growth. The Education Student Society (ESS) is another outlet building your networks, hosting a variety of social events and professional development experiences throughout the year. You will also build lasting relationships with the faculty members and staff, who are accessible, approachable and committed to supporting and helping you throughout your program. The friendly and knowledgeable staff in our integrated Student Services Office offer ongoing access to academic advising, scholarship information, and field placement requirements.
