The Bachelor of Education - Teaching French as a Second Language - Joint Program with the Université de Montréal (Baccalauréat en enseignement du français langue seconde) requires 120 credits and leads to teacher certification. 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.
This jointly offered program prepares specialist teachers to teach French as a second language in Core French programs, immersion programs, intensive programs and classes d'accueil, at both the elementary and the secondary levels. Students will be admitted into, and registered at, either the Université de Montréal or McGill as their "home" university. Courses will be offered at the Université de Montréal during the Fall term and at McGill during the Winter term.
Additional Requirements for Students admitted to B.Ed. TFSL program:
Students admitted to the B.Ed. TFSL program are required to take a diagnostic test in French Language (written and oral). Based on test results students may be required to successfully complete a remedial course above and beyond degree requirements. In addition there will be a compulsory French language test for TFSL students prior to their third Field Experience. Students will be required to pass this test in order to continue in the program.
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."
The freshman year is the time to take introductory level courses in the subject field, as well as to explore areas that are not normally taken as academic subjects within B.Ed. programs (e.g. Sociology, Psychology, Political Science, etc.). Students should also investigate the possibility of taking one of the First Year Seminar courses offered by the Faculty of Arts or the Faculty of Science.
In consultation with the program adviser, students select 30 credits of courses for their freshman (U0) year of studies.
To ensure that students are able to function effectively in French, students may need to take French as a Second Language (FRSL) courses (placement tests are required to determine the appropriate level) in their freshman year.
Recommended courses include language courses (selected from CLAS Greek/Latin; EAST Korean/Chinese/Japanese; GERM German; HISP Spanish; ISLA Arabic; ITAL Italian; RUSS Russian/Polish) and courses in the list below.
