Integrated Program

Faculty of Education

The Integrated BEd/BA, BSc, or BPHE makes it possible for students to work towards two degrees concurrently. This program allows students who have made an early commitment to teaching to begin studying Education within the first two years of their university studies. The Integrated program consists of 150 credit hours, which are normally taken over five years. Normally, students enter the Integrated Program in the first year of university studies. However, provision is also made for students who have completed work towards another Bachelor's degree to transfer into the program.

During the first three years of the program, students complete requirements for a BA, BSc, or BPHE degree, including course work in two teachable subject areas (known as the "major" and the "minor"). Students also complete Education courses during the first three years. In the second year, students begin to experience the classroom through a student teaching practicum. Practicum experience continues and expands in the third year. Years 4 and 5 of the program are known as "certification years". Students complete a variety teaching methods courses, as well as extended practicum blocks in each of these two years. The first three years can be completed on a part time basis. Years 4 and 5 must be taken full time.
