Description:The english-language concurrent Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) admits around 200 students yearly. It provides an innovative alternative to the standard undergraduate degree followed by an 8-month consecutive B.Ed. Found at most other institutions. Our concurrent four or five-year program occurs simultaneously in conjunction with a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, or Bachelor of Physical and Health Education.

Concurrent Education students choose from primary/junior (JK-grade 6) or junior/intermediate (grades 4-10) streams. In the primary/junior program, student-teachers become generalists and may teach every subject area from kindergarten to grade 6. In the junior/intermediate program, B.Ed. candidates 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 senior level (grades 11-12) should earn 30 credits in one teachable subject area in order to acquire an additional Basic Qualification after graduation.
