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.

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. Zahia Marzouk, Chair and Faculty member at the Department of Educational Studies, at
