Diploma in Education – Technology Studies

Diploma in Education – Technology Studies


The Diploma in Education - Technology Studies allows teachers of technology subjects to focus on new or established areas of curricular significance in order to enhance their knowledge of existing curricular topics and to develop new areas of curriculum. The diploma requirement is 30 post-baccalaureate credits, and its flexibility makes it a viable option to the masters program. The difference between the two is that in the diploma program students can take 12 credits of senior–level technical courses from BCIT, Emily Carr, or other design and technical institutions.
