Concurrent Education Degree Requirements

The Concurrent Education program prepares secondary school graduates to become educators (BEd).  Candidates complete Education courses concurrently with courses in the Faculty of Arts and Science, leading towards one of the following undergraduate honours degrees:

  1. Bachelor of Arts Honours and Bachelor of Education (BA(Hons)/BEd),
  2. Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) and Bachelor of Education (BFH/BEd)*
  3. Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Education (BMus/BEd)
  4. Bachelor of Science Honours and Bachelor of Education (BSc(Hons)/BEd),

*Available only at Queen's University.

The Queen's and Queen's-Trent Concurrent Education programs are distinct programs while the student is taking their Arts & Science courses at the respective universities. Transfers are not permitted. Note that admissions to the Queen’s-Trent program have been suspended as of 2014-15.

The Director of Student and Support Services (Faculty registrar) will inform the Registrar of the Ontario College of Teachers when a teacher candidate has successfully completed the program. Graduating teacher candidates who plan to teach in Ontario must formally register to become members of the College and be awarded the Certificate of Qualification and Registration as a teacher.

Program Components and Format
Candidates will select either the Primary-Junior (JK-Grade 6) or the Intermediate-Senior (Grades 7-12) program option at the end of the first year. Candidates normally devote the entire fourth year to the completion of the BA(Hons), BFH, BMus, BSc(Hons) degree.

The practicum includes eight weeks of school placement in the first three years, and 18 weeks of school-based and alternate practicum in the final year.

Program Tracks
Concurrent Education teacher candidates completing the final year of their Arts, Fine Art, Music or Science program may apply to be in one of three Program Tracks in their fourth year: Indigenous Teacher Education, Artist in Community Education, and Outdoor and Experiential Education. If they do not choose to apply to a Program Track, they will choose a concentration instead. For information about how to apply, see: How to Apply.

*Degree requirements are subject to change without notice.

Entrance into final year is contingent upon completion of each of the following items. Candidates must complete the requirements for the year in which they entered the program.

Final Year Prerequisites

The following must be complete by June 30 preceding entry to final year:

  1. Complete all prerequisite Year 1 to 3 IS Concurrent Education courses; AND
  2. Honours degree (B.A.H., B.F.H.*, BMus*, or BScH.); AND

    *Only offered at Queen’s

    Queen’s – Most undergraduate Honours degrees require 120 units. Teacher Candidates in a 114 unit degree must take 6 additional units before entering final year.
    Queen’s-Trent – Must complete a 20 unit Honours degree.
  3. Have a minimum of a B- average on their best 10 full-year courses or equivalent in half-year courses (60 units at Queen's).
  4. Complete a half-year course in Developmental Psychology; OR a full-year course in Introductory Psychology
  5. Teaching subject requirements as outlined below

Teaching Subject Requirements

Entrance into final year is contingent upon completion of each of the following items. Candidates must complete the requirements for the year in which they entered the program.

  1. Teacher Candidates must select two teaching subjects (a subject taught in Ontario secondary schools). Both teaching subjects must be offered at Queen’s Faculty of Education: Dramatic Arts, English, French as a Second Language, Geography, History, Mathematics, Music – Instrumental (Queen’s only), Music – Vocal (Queen’s only), Science-Biology, Science-Chemistry, Science-Physics, Visual Arts.
  2. Teacher Candidates must successfully complete 5 full-year courses (30 units at Queen's) in the first teaching subject (a subject taught in Ontario secondary schools).
  3. Teacher Candidates must successfully complete 4 full-year courses (24 units at Queen's) in the second teaching subject (a subject taught in Ontario secondary schools).
  4. No more than 1 full-year first-year course will be counted toward either the first or second teaching subject requirement (there are some exceptions, refer to the Teaching Subject Requirement charts for Queen's or Queen's-Trent).
  5. Teacher Candidates must have a B- average in the courses that are being used to meet the teaching subject requirements. That is, Teacher Candidates must have a B- average in at least 5 full-year courses for their first teaching subject, and must also have a B- average in at least 4 full-year courses for their second teaching subject.
  6. Each course taken in preparation of a teaching subject may be used only once towards either teaching subject. “Double counting” is not acceptable.
  7. Requirements for Courses Related to Teaching Subjects:
    Often Teacher Candidates would like to take courses from a department other than the one that reflects their teaching subject. These types of courses may be “related” to the teaching subject. For example, Teacher Candidates who select History as a teaching subject may want to take a course from the Classics Department – CLST (Queen’s) / AHCL (Queen’s-Trent) (that is not listed in the following chart) rather than the Department of History – HIST to count toward their teaching subject. No more than one full-year course will be accepted from an outside department that reflects the teaching subject (this is called a “related” course for the teaching subject); and if a Teacher Candidate wishes to request that a course be counted as related to the teaching subject and the course is not listed in the following chart, the Teacher Candidate must request approval PRIOR to taking the course (see section 8).
  8. Approval of Any Course for Teaching Subject Requirements:
    If Teacher Candidates would like to take a course outside the academic department which reflects the teaching subject AND the course does not appear in the teaching subject requirements for Intermediate-Senior, which outlines previously approved related courses; OR the Teacher Candidate would like to take a course at an institution other than the one they are attending:

i. the Teacher Candidate must send a written request to their respective Concurrent Education office with the course title, course code, and course description of that 'related' course for approval; AND
ii. this request must be approved by Student Services PRIOR to taking the course in order to ensure that the course will count toward the required courses for that teaching subject; AND
iii. the Queen’s Faculty of Education Student Services makes the final decision whether or not a course meets the requirement for that teaching subject. Teacher Candidates must have written confirmation PRIOR to taking the course.

Queen's Concurrent - If you completed all of your courses at Queen's, you do not need to send an official transcript from Queen's to the Concurrent Education Assistant. We will print your Queen's transcript and verify that you graduated in the spring 2015 convocation from your Arts and Science undergraduate degree.

Queen's-Trent Concurrent - You do not need to send an official transcript. The Queen's-Trent Program Administrator will send your Trent academic summary to Queen's on your behalf.

*Degree requirements are subject to change without notice.

Entrance into final year is contingent upon completion of each of the following items. Candidates must complete the requirements for the year in which they entered the program.

Final Year Prerequisites

The following must be complete by June 30 preceding entry to final year:

  1. Complete all prerequisite Year 1 to 3 IS Concurrent Education courses; AND
  2. Honours degree (B.A.H., B.F.H.*, BMus*, or BScH.); AND

    *Only offered at Queen’s

    Queen’s – Most undergraduate Honours degrees require 120 units. Teacher Candidates in a 114 unit degree must take 6 additional units before entering final year.
    Queen’s-Trent – Must complete a 20 unit Honours degree.
  3. Have a minimum of a B- average on their best 10 full-year courses or equivalent in half-year courses (60 units at Queen's).
  4. Complete a half-year course in Developmental Psychology; OR a full-year course in Introductory Psychology.
  5. Teaching subject requirements as outlined below

Teaching Subject Requirements

Entrance into final year is contingent upon completion of each of the following items. Candidates must complete the requirements for the year in which they entered the program.

  1. Teacher Candidates must select two teaching subjects (a subject taught in Ontario secondary schools). Both teaching subjects must be offered at Queen’s Faculty of Education: Dramatic Arts, English, First Nation, Métis & Inuit Studies, French as a Second Language, Geography, History, Mathematics, Music – Instrumental (Queen’s only), Music – Vocal (Queen’s only), Science-Biology, Science-Chemistry, Science-Physics, Visual Arts.
  2. Teacher Candidates must successfully complete 5 full-year courses (30 units at Queen's) in the first teaching subject (a subject taught in Ontario secondary schools).
  3. Teacher Candidates must successfully complete 4 full-year courses (24 units at Queen's) in the second teaching subject (a subject taught in Ontario secondary schools).
  4. No more than 1 full-year first-year course will be counted toward either the first or second teaching subject requirement (there are some exceptions, refer to the Teaching Subject Requirement charts for Queen's or Queen's-Trent).
  5. Teacher Candidates must have a B- average in the courses that are being used to meet the teaching subject requirements. That is, Teacher Candidates must have a B- average in at least 5 full-year courses for their first teaching subject, and must also have a B- average in at least 4 full-year courses for their second teaching subject.
  6. Each course taken in preparation of a teaching subject may be used only once towards either teaching subject. “Double counting” is not acceptable.
  7. Requirements for Courses Related to Teaching Subjects:
    Often Teacher Candidates would like to take courses from a department other than the one that reflects their teaching subject. These types of courses may be “related” to the teaching subject. For example, Teacher Candidates who select History as a teaching subject may want to take a course from the Classics Department – CLST (Queen’s) / AHCL (Queen’s-Trent) (that is not listed in the following chart) rather than the Department of History – HIST to count toward their teaching subject. No more than one full-year course will be accepted from an outside department that reflects the teaching subject (this is called a “related” course for the teaching subject); and if a Teacher Candidate wishes to request that a course be counted as related to the teaching subject and the course is not listed in the following chart, the Teacher Candidate must request approval PRIOR to taking the course (see section 8).
  8. Approval of Any Course for Teaching Subject Requirements:
    If Teacher Candidates would like to take a course outside the academic department which reflects the teaching subject AND the course does not appear in the teaching subject requirements for Intermediate-Senior, which outlines previously approved related courses; OR the Teacher Candidate would like to take a course at an institution other than the one they are attending:

i. the Teacher Candidate must send a written request to their respective Concurrent Education office with the course title, course code, and course description of that 'related' course for approval; AND
ii. this request must be approved by Student Services PRIOR to taking the course in order to ensure that the course will count toward the required courses for that teaching subject; AND
iii. the Queen’s Faculty of Education Student Services makes the final decision whether or not a course meets the requirement for that teaching subject. Teacher Candidates must have written confirmation PRIOR to taking the course.

Queen's Concurrent - If you completed all of your courses at Queen's, you do not need to send an official transcript from Queen's to the Concurrent Education Assistant. We will print your Queen's transcript and verify that you graduated in the spring 2015 convocation from your Arts and Science undergraduate degree.

Queen's-Trent Concurrent - You do not need to send an official transcript. The Queen's-Trent Program Administrator will send your Trent academic summary to Queen's on your behalf.

Some secondary school subjects are not offered through Queen’s Faculty of Education (for example, business, family studies, Spanish, general science, guidance). For more information on curriculum and curriculum subjects, refer to the Ontario Ministry of Education curriculum documents.
