Master of Education in Educational Studies

MES Program Cost

Our core program of 8 courses, including non-instructional fees, costs approximately $18,000, not including texts. 

Additionally, you will need to complete two FGSR-approved electives. These are not included in the figure above. Generally, graduate level courses range from $700 - $1,800 per course, depending on the institution, location, and mode of delivery. We can help you shop for courses that align with your educational interests and budget. Contact the MES Grad Secretary for assistance in selecting your electives.

If you have already completed two graduate-level courses, contact the MES Grad Secretary to determine whether the courses can be approved and applied the program.

Student Scholarships

Because the MES program is a part-time, course-based program, students generally do not qualify for student scholarships through the University of Alberta.  In the past, many of our students have qualified for funding through their local school division, and some have received scholarships through external sources such as the Alberta Teachers Association.
