Both universities in Saskatchewan, the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Regina, offer Bachelor of Education Programs.

The University of Regina offers a Direct Entry, 4 year Bachelor of Education that students can enter straight from high school.  There are two programs, firstly, the Elementary/Middle Years Program which is broadly based, preparing school professionals who will teach core curriculum subjects which include Arts Education, Health, Language Arts, Mathematics, Physical Education, Science and Social Studies. Secondly, the Secondary Program prepares teachers who will work in high schools.  This program requires students to study a major and a minor teachable area.

The University of Saskatchewan now offers a Direct Entry, 4 year Bachelor of Education program.  Students attending Cumberland College may be admitted directly into the College of Education at the University of Saskatchewan.  You can choose the Elementary/Middle Years program to work in elementary schools or the Secondary education program to teach in high schools.

Admission for the College of Education (U of S):

  • Admission is based on a competitive ranking. Selection criteria used to calculate an admission score include: admission average (50%), online interview (25%) and 35-40 hours working with children (25%). Applicants will be ranked competitively by admission score and spaces will be offered to the top applicants.

    For current high school students, an admission average will be calculated following our five-subject average formula using Gr. 12 level subjects completed up to the end of Term 1. Midterm grades for non-semestered (year-long) courses can also be used. For high school graduates, an admission average is calculated using only Gr. 12 level subjects.



You can complete a full first year (30 credit units) at Cumberland College.  To complete your degree you must move to the University of Saskatchewan or Regina.  You must apply to, and be accepted by, the University of Saskatchewan or University of Regina to start your Education degree at Cumberland College. 

Please see a College Advisor for academic advising to choose the correct courses for you.
