Bachelor of Education

The BEd is a two-year program taken following completion of a first degree. The program has two streams: elementary (Primary to Grade 6) and secondary (Grades 7 to 12). Specialist programs in Physical Education and French are also available in both streams. Completed applications must be submitted by January 25 of the year for which admission is sought.

The general admission requirements for the BEd are as follows:

  • Applicants for the two-year BEd program must have completed a first degree in arts, science, human kinetics (formerly physical education), or the equivalent.
  • Normally, applicants for the BEd program must have a senior-year average of at least 70 as admission is competitive. Consideration is also given to the applicant's performance throughout the entire undergraduate program.
  • At the present time, admission to the BEd program is limited to approximately 100 students. Because of the high number of applicants, students admitted usually have superior academic records. Serious consideration is also given to reports from referees and to work experience related to a career in teaching. Interviews are required.
