I'm a Bachelor of General Studies in Education student minoring in History and Curriculum and Instruction. I also love to run, play soccer and read, so I'm adding on a Health and Fitness Certificate.
Why I chose the Faculty of Education
I spent several years teaching and working with children. It felt like the thing to do. I found out about the Bachelor of General Studies through the help of Jacquie, the Undergraduate Student Advisor. She's awesome!
Instructor of note
Enjoyed attending class with Robin Barrow and Elizabeth (Beth) Marshall. Dr. Barrow's classes are very informative, and he's just an awesome individual. Beth's class was a breath of fresh air. The way she teaches is simple, real and keeps you interested.
The people that educate and teach–which could be anyone–always have a perspective that is inherently original. These original stories keep me coming back.
My Student Advice
It's a great program with supportive teachers, advisors and a student body that, really, encompasses students from all Faculties. This diversity is what makes being part of the Faculty of Education so proud and rewarding.
My Best Learning Experience
I've had many Education courses where the material I learn actually translates into the 'real world' skills.
