In cooperation with the Faculties of Arts and Science at Queen's University and at Trent University in Peterborough, a Concurrent Teacher Education program is offered whereby candidates complete Education courses concurrently with their Arts and Science courses for two degrees. Concurrent degrees are normally Bachelor of Education, and an honours degree in one of Bachelor or Arts, Science, Computing or Music. (The Concurrent Music/Education and Computing/Education program are offered at Queen's only.)
With the strong field-centred orientation of its professional components, the Concurrent Education program has the advantages of clarifying vocational interest, sharpening awareness of issues inherent in teaching and learning, and achieving integration of academic and professional studies. From the initial year, candidates are provided with in-school experiences that form the basis of theoretical studies. The Education portion of the program is developmental in nature, and includes an extended teaching placement in the final year.
Upper year Queen's Concurrent Education candidates who will be coming into final year in September 2013 will attend an information session at Queen's on November 6. Upper year Concurrent Education candidates in the Queen's-Trent program will attend a final year information session on November 7. Below is a copy of the handout for each of those meetings. The date the on-line Practicum Registration form becomes available is on the information handout.
Notice: To complete the Concurrent Program, students must meet the requirements as stated in the Guide for their entry year. The Teacher Candidate Guides for the last six years can be referenced below.
