What if I am thinking about pursuing a master’s program after completing the BEd in Adult Education?
There is no guarantee of admission to graduate studies which can be offered to a candidate upon completion of the BEd in Adult Education. Each university has different policies governing its admissions procedures, so it is the applicant's responsibility to investigate each institution directly. If you would like further information regarding the MEd at Brock, please visit the Graduate Education page, email med@brocku.ca or call 905 688 5550 x3340.
