Master of Education in Educational Practice, MEd EP


This Master of Education in Educational Practice (MEd EP) is a 12-month professional degree that is “laddered” from successful completion of the Graduate Diploma in Advanced Professional Studies in Education (GDE) in Field Programs at SFU or equivalent (30 units).

This program provides the opportunity for teacher-learners to extend the work undertaken in the GDE by broadening and deepening their understandings of educational theory, research and practice. This program is designed to support teacher-learners to:

  • situate themselves as educators within educational theories and practices
  • develop understandings and capacities related to teacher-inquiry
  • undertake an inquiry in educational practice
  • synthesize and represent their learning to a community of practitionerinquirers through a written paper and a summative presentation

This program is offered at SFU campuses in the Lower Mainland and other areas of British Columbia, where there is a sufficient concentration of qualified applicants.  Specific locations for the programs in the Lower Mainland are determined by proximity to admissible applicants.

Classes may be held either in the evenings or on weekends, depending on the location of the program.



“I chose the Faculty of Education at SFU because I laddered the Fine Arts graduate diploma program into the master’s program.  SFU was also highly recommended by colleagues for graduate studies because of their highly regarded professors and curriculum.”
