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.
