The Faculty comprises three academic units serving both undergraduate and graduate students: the Department of Integrated Studies in Education (DISE), the Department of Educational and Counselling Psychology (ECP), and the Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education (KPE).

Faculty members teach within their respective disciplines and participate in a diversity of basic and applied research projects locally, nationally and internationally. Research initiatives inform our teacher training programs, educating graduates who enter the classroom as teachers with current, relevant, and optimized professional skill-sets. Our research centres and institutes function as hubs for interdisciplinary work and engage experts from numerous nations, faculties, and schools.

Our faculty's special initiatives and partnerships connect us with community organizations, educational institutions, government and industry affiliates. Since 1976 our First Nations and Inuit Education programs have worked in partnership with Indigenous communities throughout Quebec.
