About Science or Mathematics for Teachers

About Science or Mathematics for Teachers

The training and certification of school teachers has traditionally been the responsibility of the Faculty of Education and requires the completion of a Bachelor of Education, subject to Ministère de l'Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport (MELS) regulations. The Faculties of Education and of Science have introduced a number of programs for students who wish to combine Science or Mathematics with Education at McGill. These include the Minor in Education for Science Students, and the Concurrent B.Sc. and B.Ed. The traditional Bachelor of Education, Secondary Program, Science and Technology, or Secondary Program, Mathematics is also available within the Faculty of Education; see Faculty of Education > Overview of Programs (Integrated Studies in Education).

The Minor allows Science students to develop or explore an interest in Education without committing themselves to completing a B.Ed. degree. Science students who have taken this Minor will have completed a substantial number of the necessary credits for the B.Ed. degree should they wish to enrol in that program. The Minor also allows the possibility of transferring into the Concurrent B.Sc. and B.Ed. For details, see Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) - Minor Education for Science Students (18 credits).

The Concurrent B.Sc. and B.Ed. is intended as a very rigorous but rewarding alternative to taking the B.Sc. and the B.Ed. in sequence. It is specifically designed to prepare teacher/scientists and is aligned with the requirements of the Quebec Ministère de l'Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport. It has been designed to provide students with the opportunity to attain both a B.Sc. degree and a B.Ed. degree at the same time. It is highly structured and closely integrated so as to satisfy the academic requirements of both degrees.

To be admitted, candidates must satisfy the admission requirements of both faculties. Normally, students will be admitted to both components of the Concurrent B.Sc. and B.Ed. simultaneously. It is possible for students to apply for transfer into this program at any time during their B.Sc. or B.Ed. program. However, because this is a concurrent program, both degrees must be granted at the same Convocation. After admission, students should contact one of the coordinators to discuss course selection and scheduling.

Students in the Concurrent B.Sc. and B.Ed. may apply to transfer to either a conventional B.Sc. or a conventional B.Ed. program. To do so, they must submit a Faculty Transfer Application to the appropriate Student Affairs Office. The decision will be based on their grades in the relevant component of the Concurrent Program. Students who do transfer to a conventional program may not transfer back to the Concurrent Program.

The two components of the Concurrent B.Sc. and B.Ed. are the B.Ed. Secondary program (120 credits) and one of the B.Sc. programs for teachers (90 credits, or 120 credits for students who have not completed the basic sciences). They are combined in such a way that students complete 135 or 165 credits to fulfil all the requirements for graduation for both the B.Ed. and the B.Sc. These combinations are created exceptionally and exclusively for the Concurrent B.Sc. and B.Ed. For more detailed information about the Concurrent Program, particularly how some elements are double-counted so as to satisfy the requirements of both the Faculty of Education and the Faculty of Science, see the program website:www.mcgill.ca/scienceforteachers.

Details of the nine different combinations, including an identification of the elements that are double-counted, are found at the links below. Eight combinations for Science have been specifically designed to align with the teachable subject areas in Education. Each incorporates one Major Concentration and one Minor. Note that Major Concentrations are not the same as Major programs. The Mathematics combination includes the Major, not the Major Concentration, in Mathematics.

Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) - Minor Education for Science Students (18 credits)

This Minor allows Science students to develop or explore an interest in Education without committing themselves to completing a B.Ed. degree. Science students who have taken this Minor in Education will have completed a substantial number of the necessary credits for the B.Ed. degree should they wish to enrol in that program. The Minor also allows the possibility of transferring into the Concurrent B.Sc. and B.Ed. program, since the 18 credits for the Minor, with the exception of EDEM 220, are also among the Education courses required in this dual degree program. Equally, students having completed a B.Sc. degree, including the Minor, whose content substantially matches that of one of the Concurrent B.Sc. and B.Ed. combinations are likely eligible for the maximum number of advanced standing credits, as specified by the Faculty of Education.
