  • Education grad earns third Brock degree

    For Jennifer Brant, the dream of completing a PhD was simply not a reality.

    “As a masters student my supervisor and committee members talked about potential directions for my doctoral work well before I had even thought it was a possibility,” explains Brant.

    “To my surprise, it seemed that my ability to succeed in a doctoral program was no question for them. I am truly honoured that they planted those initial seeds and fostered the belief in my ability to pursue higher education.”

    On Oct. 12, she graduated from the PhD in Educational Studies program, marking the third degree she has completed at Brock.Read more

  • Fall Convocation 2018

    Congratulations to our newest graduates and alumni!

    Today the Faculty of Education has 152 new alumni, from our two most recent PhDs to our certificate programs in Adult Education.

    We are very proud of each graduate. They, their family and friends have invested significantly in their success. They have worked diligently in their studies, their practicums and their research. Some, such as Spirit of Brock medal winner Nigel Crosscombe, were recognized with awards. Many have overcome significant hurdles – caring for family members, working full and part-time, or being away from family and friends in their home country and community.

    Graduating from our programs does not mean our relationship ends. It is only one step in a life-long partnership. We look forward to learning about our graduates successes – as teachers and administrators, as scholars and as community leaders. We look forward to welcoming some back into our masters and doctorate programs. And, we look forward to celebrating your achievements.

    To our newest alumni, we wish you all the best as you take your next steps.

    Meet some of our new alumni
