General Information Go to top of document
Administrative Assistant Mona Lavoie 905-688-5550 extension 4226 Welch Hall 8A brocku.ca/education The Faculties of Mathematics and Science and Social Sciences, and the Faculty of Education co-operate in offering a concurrent five-year program combining a Bachelor of Science (BSc) (Honours) degree and a Bachelor of Education (BEd) degree for students interested in teaching at the Intermediate/Senior level (grades 7-12). Students must be registered full-time and follow the prescribed program. Any exceptions must have the approval of the Administrative Director of Concurrent Education Programs and the Chair, Department of Teacher Education. Students must maintain a minimum 70 percent cumulative overall average each year in all undergraduate academic grade-marked courses. Students must achieve a 75 percent average in a minimum of 5.0 credits in their Major (first teachable subject). Each student must choose a Major from: Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Geography, Mathematics and Physics as these areas are the teachable subjects available from co-operating departments in the Faculty of Mathematics and Sciences and Social Sciences at Brock at the Intermediate/Senior level. Students are encouraged to consult with the departments to select courses relevant to high school education. The selection of the second teachable subject must be declared through the Office of Concurrent Education Programs prior to registration for year 2. A maximum of 2.0 first year credits can be included in a second teachable subject. Students must complete a second teachable subject (minimum 3.0 credits) prior to starting Year 5. A minimum of 10.5 academic undergraduate credits in Mathematics and Sciences must be completed for a BSc Honours degree to be awarded. Teacher Education courses are credited toward the BEd while the remaining courses are credited to the BSc. For this reason, a student who transfers out of the BSc/BEd program will not have credit in Teacher Education courses applied to an undergraduate degree. Students should note that credits for the concurrent BSc (Honours)/BEd program are not evenly distributed between the years because of the structure of Education courses. Students are responsible to note Calendar and scheduling differences between the Undergraduate and Teacher Education Departments. The Teacher Education program is organized subject to the requirements of Brock University and outside regulatory organizations that govern teacher education in Ontario (e.g. the Ontario College of Teachers). In any year the program requirements for the Teacher Education program may change in order to meet outside regulatory requirements. Student must complete program requirements for the first four years of the concurrent program by September prior to commencing the final year. Terms of study at another institution cannot be accommodated during the Fall/Winter sessions. Students must maintain continuous registration within a twelve-month period to retain concurrent education status. Possible resumption of concurrent status will be evaluated on an individual basis. In extenuating circumstances, concurrent students in good standing may request an extension of their program and the deferral of the final year. Successful graduates will receive a Bachelor of Science (Honours) degree and a Bachelor of Education degree. Upon successful completion of a teacher education program, teacher candidates are normally recommended to the Ontario College of Teachers for membership and to receive their Ontario Certificate of Qualification. The Department of Teacher Education reserves the right to assign Concurrent Education students, in their final year, to either the Hamilton or St Catharines campus in order to secure school placements aligned with teachable subjects. Students are responsible for their own transportation for practice teaching and other activities related to the program. This is a limited enrolment program. Although admissions will be primarily based on grades, other criteria, such as balance across teachable disciplines or teaching areas of high need may be used in the selection process in any particular year.  
Ontario College of Teachers Criminal Records Screening Policy Go to top of document
1.  The Ontario College of Teachers requires both a criminal record check and a criminal record declaration by the applicant as necessary components of registration for new applicants.
2.  The costs associated with the provision of the criminal record check and any appeals are to be borne by the applicant.
3.  All positive reports of criminal offences will be examined by the Ontario College of Teachers Registrar to determine whether the record of offence(s) is relevant to the applicant's honesty, integrity and/or suitability to practice the profession and whether the offence(s) constitute reasonable grounds for refusal to issue a certificate of qualification and registration, or to impose terms, conditions or limitations on registration, in accordance with Section 18(2) of the Ontario College of Teachers Act.
4.  Applicants for registration by the Ontario College of Teachers will be advised of the reasons for the decisions of the Ontario College of Teachers Registrar to refuse certification or to impose terms, conditions or limitations and that appeals to these decisions will be determined in accordance with Part III of the Ontario College of Teachers Act.
  Questions regarding the policy should be directed to the Ontario College of Teachers.
 
Admissions Go to top of document
Students interested in the BSc (Honours)/BEd (Intermediate/Senior) program apply directly from secondary school. University or college transfer applicants with less than the equivalent of 4.0 university transfer credits may be considered for admission. Brock students may apply and be admitted to second year if there is space available. To apply students must have a minimum 70 percent overall average in Year 1; their Year 1 program must replicate the 5.0 credit concurrent program requirements; the secondary school English and Mathematics program admission requirements must be met. Application forms are available on the Concurrent Education web site from April 1. The completed documents must be filed in the Concurrent Education Office by June 1. Late applications will not be accepted. Students should note that this is a limited enrolment program and admission is not guaranteed by attainment of the minimum requirements.  
Program Notes Go to top of document
1.  CHYS 2P15 has field experience and must be taken during the Fall/Winter Session.  
2.  Practice teaching may have to be scheduled in May and June of year 5.  
3.  Students failing to maintain the 70 percent cumulative overall average are granted an opportunity to upgrade their marks and to be reinstated. A request to upgrade may be granted only once.  
4.
