Undergraduate Program Information

Teacher Certification Programs

The Faculty offers a variety of programs for the kindergarten/elementary and the secondary levels, and three specialist programs in second language, music, and physical & health education. These prepare you to teach at both the elementary and secondary level. Student teaching field experiences are at the heart of all our teacher education programs. Students are placed in a school each year, and will spend at least 700 hours in a range of classroom settings. During this classroom experience, students are mentored by dedicated teams of cooperating teachers and McGill supervisors.

B.Sc. Kinesiology Program

Kinesiology, the "study of movement"; also known as exercise, sport, or movement science, is a multidisciplinary field which considers the sociological, psychological, and developmental perspectives of physical activity and sports while examining the biological and mechanical foundations of movement. Career outcomes may be found in the areas of ergonomics, protective equipment design, health counselling, physical fitness evaluation, exercise prescription and supervision, and sports administration.
