EDST Education courses were designed for students who are considering entering the teaching profession (elementary, high school, or post-secondary) and/or professions which involve a considerable amount of teaching as part of their duties (e.g., nursing, counselling, health care, business, etc.).

All courses are transferable to other institutions.

See the 2021-22 Calendar for more details.

Education Stream!

The Education Stream was developed for students interested in pursuing work in educational settings and/or the many 21st century careers that involve teaching others (e.g., business, NGO’s, social services). Students who complete the 4 courses listed in the concentration will receive a Record of Achievement from KPU that acknowledges completion. 

Please note: KPU streams are not official degree credentials and therefore are not recorded on students' official transcripts. Students receive a separate Record of Achievement upon completion of a stream. When a student has completed the required courses they should contact Dr. Ann-Marie McLellan, Chair and Faculty member at the Department of Educational Studies, at
