Program Vision:

Program Mission: Bishop’s School of Education offers a Master of Education Program in Leadership, Societies and Language (non-thesis), designed to meet academic and professional needs of educators and administrators. As well, we offer a Master of Arts Program — Leadership, Societies and Language (thesis) to prepare educational professionals to pursue research-based inquires, often leading to doctoral studies in education.

Institutional Mission: In 1843, the founders of Bishop’s University declared their intention “to offer to the country at large the blessing of a sound and liberal education.” Today, our primary focus remains the liberal education of undergraduate students. We aspire to be the institution of choice for outstanding young people seeking academic excellence and a comprehensive undergraduate experience in a community that instills confidence, courage, and a sense of responsibility in its students. At the heart of the Bishop’s experience is close interaction between professors and students, within the classroom and elsewhere, in research, scholarship and creative activity. We seek to engage our students in their own intellectual and social development by offering programs of study and extracurricular activities that foster intellectual curiosity and a life-long commitment to learning. As a learning community, we are engaged in the advancement and dissemination of knowledge. We encourage both breadth and depth in our students’ academic programs, to equip them to explore and solve complex problems. We are committed to maintaining our intimate size and residential nature in order to foster the social development of our students, encourage the creation of lasting friendships and engender a true sense of community. We invite our students, who come from Quebec, across Canada, and around the world, to practice the respectful and informed dialogue that sustains democracy, to exercise the rights and responsibilities of good citizenship and to realize their potential for leadership. We encourage our students to engage with individuals from different social, cultural and linguistic backgrounds and to take advantage of opportunities to open themselves to the world.
