Education-Secondary Route, University Transfer Loading...
The Secondary Route at the University of Alberta requires students to develop a major and minor area of specialization. Admission to the University of Alberta into this route is based on the declared Major, as well as the student's overall course work. Students are eligible to apply to the Faculty of Education for second year admission with 24 to 30 transfer credits or for third year admission with 60 transfer credits.
For the first two years (60 credits) of the program, it is recommended that students complete a minimum of 18 credits in their major and 9 to 15 credits of their minor, where possible. For a list of majors and minors available and the courses required, there is a Bachelor of Education Secondary Program Worksheet available to students through the Academic Advisors in Student Services.
Due to the nature of this program, it is highly recommended for students to speak with an Academic Advisor in Student Services prior to registration. Certain high school courses will be required dependent on the major/minor chosen. See Admission requirements under the University Transfer Education section for more details.
