What will I learn?

Overview

Learn about yourself as you prepare to teach the next generation of eager students.

Complete a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, or Bachelor of Physical and Health Education while taking courses to meet the requirements for entry into the Professional Year (5th year). Graduate a year ahead of the consecutive teaching programs.

Choose from one of two streams offered, primary/junior (JK-grade 6) or junior/intermediate (grades 4-10). Earn credits in specific subjects in order to teach at the intermediate and senior levels.

Student success is supported by an undergraduate advisor and director to assist with academic and education career counseling.

Gain hands-on experience through three undergraduate field-experience placements, and a “six-week Initial Placement” immediately after completing the undergraduate degree at the end of fourth-year. Placements could include schools and organizations such as Frontier College, YMCA, Better Beginnings Better Futures, Best Start Hubs, and Learning Disabilities Association of Sudbury.

Career Opportunities

Public or private elementary or secondary school teacher, college instructor, museum educator, graduate studies, Rainbow School Board, Sudbury District Catholic School Board, as well as other school boards across Ontario and beyond including the Ministry of Education.

Interesting facts:

In order to teach in the publicly-funded school system of Ontario, all prospective teachers must acquire a B.Ed. from an institution of higher learning accredited by the College of Teachers. This qualification can also provide you with employment opportunities in other provinces and territories, as well as countries around the world. Laurentian’s English School of Education is one of the few institutions in the province that offers a concurrent B.Ed. Our students study for a 4-year undergraduate degree and during the course of their program will take several education courses, attend a half-dozen or so workshops, as well as complete a variety of placements. These placements could include schools and organizations such as Frontier College, YMCA, Better Beginnings Better Futures, Best Start Hubs as well as Learning Disabilities Association of Sudbury. The five years of the concurrent education provides students with an opportunity to experience a wide variety of educational settings. The range of experiences enables the student to make an informed judgment about whether teaching is a profession they truly wish to pursue. Those students who choose to opt out of the program can still complete their four-year degree.
