What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) - Secondary English program requires 120 credits and leads to teacher certification.

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.
