Welcome to Undergraduate Studies


Become a Teacher!

What makes our teacher education program one of the best in the country? It really comes down to our philosophy of growing the finest educators possible. Everything we do is designed to fulfill that philosophy, from our outstanding Faculty to the breadth of our programs, the students we accept, to the teachers who will mentor them.

As we see it, when we meet that commitment, we serve our deeper dedication to educating students who will have the good fortune of learning from a ULethbridge Faculty of Education graduate.

The teacher education program can be completed in three ways:

  1. The Combined Degrees Program is a five-year program which results in the simultaneous granting of two degrees: a Bachelor of Education and a second degree from another faculty; 
  2. If you already have a degree, you may be eligible for the two-year After Degree BEd. Program;
  3. New for Fall 2024: The four-year BEd in Early Years Education prepares students who know they want to teach at the Kindergarten to Grade 3 level. 

Graduates of all three programs will be certified to teach K - 12 in Alberta.

New! Application deadline is March 1. Document deadline is April 1

Program Completion

Upon completion of the program, each student will have accumulated 27 weeks of student teaching. A student will be eligible to apply for teacher certification to teach Kindergarten to Grade 12 in the Province of Alberta once the BEd program has been successfully completed. Other provinces will honour Alberta teacher certification, although there may be additional criteria required by each province. Please see the Graduation Procedures page for further information.
