Secondary Education and Teaching
Description: Do you dream of becoming a CTS teacher? Various Career and Technology Studies subjects can be taken as a major or minor as part of a Bachelor of Secondary Education. Note that you cannot enrol in both a major and a minor in CTS. The available CTS majors/minors are Business, Administration, Finance; Computing Science; Health; Recreation; Human Sciences; Media; Design; Communication Arts; Natural Resources; and Trades, Manufacturing and Transportation.

Teaching is a calling, and we are dedicated to helping you become the homeroom teacher that your students will remember for a lifetime. Our Secondary Education program in the Faculty of Education prepares you to pass on your love of learning and discovery in almost any subject to students in grades 7-12. You’ll choose two areas of specialization — a major and minor — allowing you to pursue your passion and customize your experience. The Secondary Education program includes a five-week Introductory Professional Term (IPT) and a nine-week Advanced Professional Term (APT). You will typically teach in your Major subject in both your IPT and APT.
