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 Requirements changes as of Fall 2019!
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 Ann-Marie.McLellan@kpu.ca.
The education stream requires that students complete 12 credits of education courses from the list below:
EDUC 2220 Intro to Educational Psychology
