Career and Technology Studies Requirements
If You Already Have a Degree:
If you wish to enter the Faculty of Education with a major in CTS (Business Focus or New Media), you must possess a recognized degree that includes a major in Management/Commerce or New Media. In addition, all other prerequisites for admission must be met.
At the time of admission, the nature of the applicant's degree is examined, and a program is planned and approved by the Faculty of Education. If the approved degree contains the necessary components, including a completed teaching major, both certification and B.Ed. requirements may be met upon completion of 20 courses/60 credit hours in Education.
*You may be required to make up deficiencies in your teachable school subject major if the total number of required courses is not complete, although acceptable, at the point of admission to the program. These courses will be over and above the 20 mandatory Education courses.
