Description:The Higher Education Group (HEG) is Canada's leading centre for graduate studies and research in the field of higher education. Founded by the University of Toronto in 1969, the HEG has been the academic home for many of the leading scholars in the field of Canadian higher education. The Higher Education Group specializes in the study of universities, community colleges, and other post secondary institutions, the relationship between these institutions and the broader society in which they operate, and the nature of what takes place inside these institutions. The study of higher education embraces critical examination, both historical and contemporary, of phenomena related to tertiary-level education, particularly tertiary-level institutions and systems in Canada. While all students obtain a basic understanding of Canadian higher education, many also choose to learn about higher education from an international, comparative perspective. As well, the HEG offers a Masters of Education (M.Ed.) degree specializing in Health Professional Education, and a Flexible (Ph.D.) degree for working professionals.
