Administrative history

Beginning in 1910, courses in educational theory and history, as well as summer courses for practising teachers, were offered through the College of Arts and Science. The failure to coordinate its efforts with those of the Normal School (teacher's college, established in Saskatoon in 1913), prompted the University to create a School of Education to prepare students to teach in the secondary school system. After one year's operation, the School became the College of Education in 1928. The College offered a one-year certificate programme as well as a Bachelor of Education (B.Ed) degree for students completing additional course work. In 1947 a 4-year degree programme was introduced. In 1964 the College, on behalf of the University, assumed the responsibilities and absorbed the personnel of the province's Normal Schools. The following individuals have served as Dean: F.M. Quance (1928-1947); S.R. Laycock (1947-1953); C.E. Smith (1953-1955); A.C. McEown [Acting] (1955-1956); J.B. Kirkpatrick (1956-1976); R.H. Farquhar (1976-1981); Naomi L. Hersom (1981-1986); M.P. Scharf (1986- ).
