The Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) - Kindergarten and Elementary Education - First Nations and Inuit Studies program requires 120 credits and leads to teacher certification. Interested applicants must contact the office of First Nations and Inuit Education for admission information; please call 514-398-4533.
Students who have not completed Quebec CEGEP, French Baccalaureate, International Baccalaureate, or at least one year of university studies prior to commencing the B.Ed. must also complete a minimum of 30 credits of freshman courses (in addition to the 120 credit program) for a total of 150 credits. Students who are admitted as "mature students" are not required to complete the 30 credits of freshman courses. These students are admitted to U1.
Please note that graduates of teacher education programs are recommended by the University for Quebec Certification to the Quebec Ministère de l'Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport (MELS). For more information about teacher certification in Quebec, please refer to the Faculty of Education section under "Overview of Faculty Programs," "Undergraduate Education Programs," and "Quebec Teacher Certification."
Students normally complete 30 credits in their freshman (U0) year.
The freshman year is the time to take introductory-level courses in the subjects taught in Elementary school, as well as to explore areas that are not normally taken as teachable subject area courses within B.Ed. programs (e.g. Sociology, Psychology, Political Science, etc.).
Students admitted to the First Nations and Inuit Studies program in U0 should consult with their program adviser for guidance on course selection. More information is also found for newly admitted students to the B.Ed. Kindergarten and Elementary Education program on the Faculty of Education website at http://www.mcgill.ca/edu-dise/students/undergraduate/new/#KE.
