NS considers accelerated teaching degree proposals from Acadia, MSVU, STFX, USainte-Anne

The Government of Nova Scotia is assessing proposals from four universities that are hoping to offer accelerated education degrees, similar to that of Cape Breton University. CBU previously announced its intent to offer short-length online and in-person bachelor of education degrees in order to address labour shortages in Nova Scotia’s education system . The proposals from Acadia University, Mount Saint Vincient University, St Francis Xavier University, and Université Sainte-Anne would allow these universities to offer similar options. NS Education Minister Becky Druhan also noted that the province is working on regulatory changes related to teacher certification, which are hoped to be completed in time for the Fall.
