Program Requirements

The Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) - Secondary English program 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 credits for the program) for a total of 150 credits.

The aim of the B.Ed. Secondary Education Program is to prepare strong beginning teachers for the secondary school level. This integrated program consists of academic studies, professional studies, and school-based practicum components. All of this is supported by studies in pedagogy, curriculum and educational foundations.

The Secondary English program provides students with the learning opportunities needed to become proficient English teachers.

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."

Freshman Program

Students normally complete 30 credits in their freshman (U0) year.

The freshman year is the time to take introductory level courses in English, as well as to explore areas that are not normally taken as teachable subject areas 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 addition, in consultation with the program adviser, students may select courses from the recommended course list below or other courses. The list includes English literature courses that may be used toward the academic component of the Secondary English course requirements. Also included are several French Second Language (FRSL) courses for which placement tests are required to determine the appropriate level.
