Master of Arts in Education Curriculum

Registration information

In the Master of Arts in Education Community College program in Ontario, you are part of a cohort. This cohort, or group of students, works through the program together following the schedule established at the start of the program. We automatically register you and your fellow cohort students for courses. If you have questions or are unable to take a course or need assistance in making up a course you've missed, please email

Cohorts start on a rotating basis and typically after the previous cohort at a given location has graduated. Please note that cohorts do not start at every college every year.
