Home Economics: Is it for you?

  • The University of Saskatchewan is the only institution in the province where you can access the courses necessary for certification as a teacher in Practical & Applied Arts.
  • The U of S offers a four-year direct-entry program that provides you with the background to assist students with an interest in attaining practical knowledge in the applied arts.
  • Field experiences are an integral part of the education program at the University of Saskatchewan, and will enable teacher candidates to integrate theoretical and practical knowledge about teaching as they observe students and work with individuals and small groups as well as whole classes. The faculty team and field experience coordinators will engage with teacher candidates in practical field experiences, to provide opportunities for discussion about what is learned, and to understand in depth the role of schools and teaching in Canadian society.

    What is Practical & Applied Arts: Home Economics?

    Home Economics focuses on the family unit: ecosystems, consumerism, living environments, financial management, politics, and clothing and textiles. The hands-on, practical courses are perfect for teaching these traditional skills.
