Program Requirements
Note: New students are no longer being admitted to this program.
The Concurrent Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) and Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.)  Major Mathematics for Teachers is jointly offered by the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Education. Separately, the Bachelor of Science degree requires 90 credits (or 120 credits for students who have not completed the basic sciences) and the Bachelor of Education degree requires 120 credits. In the concurrent program, the requirements for the two degrees are combined in such a way that students complete 135 (or 165 credits) to fulfil all the requirements for graduation for both the B.Sc. and the B.Ed.
Graduates of the B.Ed. degree are recommended by the University to the Quebec Ministère de l'Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport (MELS) for Quebec Teacher Certification. 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 Major Mathematics is one of the nine variations of the program and allows students to focus their Science degree in Mathematics.
To fulfil the requirements for graduation for the Concurrent Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Education, the 135 credits (or 165 credits for students admitted without basic sciences) include the following:
(30 credits of Science Freshman Program (for students admitted without basic sciences))
60 credits of Education Component
54 credits of Science Component consisting of:
 54 credits of the Major Mathematics
21 credits of Electives, of which at least 18 credits must be Science Electives, depending on how many credits count toward both the B.Sc. and the B.Ed. degrees.
For details on the counting of credits toward both degrees (doublecounting) visit the program website http://www.mcgill.ca/scienceforteachers/.
B.Sc. Freshman Program
Students who enter Science in U0 will normally be registered in the Science Freshman Program until they complete their first year. They must consult an adviser in the Science Office for Undergraduate Student Advising (SOUSA) to obtain advice and approval of their course selection. Full details are available on the SOUSA website at http://www.mcgill.ca/science/sousa. Academic advising is also available by email. The address is newstudentadvising [dot] science [at] mcgill [dot] ca.
Students normally complete 30 credits which must include at least seven courses from the list of Approved Freshman Science Courses, selected as follows:
General Math and Science Breadth
Six of the Freshman courses must satisfy one of the following:
Option 1) 2 courses from MATH and 4 courses from BIOL, CHEM or PHYS;
or
Option 2) 3 courses from MATH and 3 courses from BIOL, CHEM or PHYS.
Science Complementary
The seventh course is chosen from the list of Approved Freshman Science Courses.
Notes:
1. Students who have not studied all of Biology, Chemistry, and Physics at the grade 12 level or equivalent are strongly advised to include at least one course in the missing discipline in their Freshman Program.
2. Many students will complete more than seven courses from the Approved Freshman Science Courses list, particularly those who wish to leave several options open for their choice of major.
3. Students entering the Freshman Program must be aware of the department specific requirements when selecting their courses. Detailed advising information is available at : http://www.mcgill.ca/science/student/newstudents/u0/bscfreshman/specific.
4. The maximum number of courses per term, required, complementary, and elective, is five.
