Welcome from the Dean

College of Education Dean, Michelle Prytula


We are excited about the year ahead and look forward to the College of Education’s ongoing excellent work with students within all of our programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Our primary work involves dedication in preparing teachers who not only meet but exceed Saskatchewan Ministry of Education competencies, based on the rich program of studies we offer. Our program extends beyond the University of Saskatchewan campus into partnering communities, supporting and being supported by provincial and First Nation schools.  In addition to teacher preparation, we are also committed to high quality graduate education at the masters and doctoral levels, endeavouring to influence a variety of fields locally and globally.  Our faculty have superb records in teaching, research, scholarly and artistic work, and public service, as well as stellar knowledge of the discipline and related areas of specialization, and are committed to student engagement at all levels.

Saskatoon has a rich history of Teacher Education and the College of Education is proud of its roots in teacher training and development, boasting upwards of 30,000 alumni in its 80 year history. We currently register approximately 350 undergraduate students each year, and in the fall of 2014 saw upwards of 320 students head into internships within rural and urban provincial school divisions and First Nations Communities. Our graduate student programs are vibrant with activity and innovation, with over 600 local, national, and international students registered in avariety of different graduate and post-graduate programs.  We are grateful to the many partnerships that have supported our students, and look forward to continuing to grow as a culturally diverse, robust and innovative center for teacher training in Saskatchewan.
