The English-language Concurrent Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) admits approximately 200 students yearly and provides a practical alternative to the traditionally prescribed undergraduate with consecutive B.Ed. It is a concurrent four or five-year program offered in conjunction with a Bachelor of Arts, Science or Physical and Health Education. Read more about our conceptual framework.
• Four or five-year (Honours) programs lead to a Concurrent Bachelor of Education with three or four-year arts or sciences degree and four-year degrees in physical and health education, or in sport psychology
• Concurrent education graduates choose from primary/junior (JK-grade 6) or junior/intermediate (grades 4-10)
• In the primary/junior program, students become generalists and may teach every subject area from kindergarten to grade 6
• In the junior/intermediate program, students must earn at least 18 credits in one teachable subject (i.e. English, French, history, geography, science, Native studies, mathematics, religious studies, music [instrumental, vocal], health and physical education)
• Students who wish to eventually teach at the intermediate/senior level (grades 7-12) must earn 30 credits in one subject area.
