The Faculty of Mathematics and Science and the Faculty of Education co-operate in offering a concurrent four-year program combining a Bachelor of Science (BSc) (Pass) degree with a Bachelor of Education (BEd) for students interested in teaching mathematics or science at the Junior/Intermediate level (grades 4-10) emphasizing elementary school.

Students in the BSc (Pass)/BEd program must be registered full-time and follow the prescribed program. Any exceptions must have the approval of the Program Director. Students must maintain a minimum 75 percent overall average each year in all academic grade-marked courses.

Students will have program approval to accept an International Exchange program if they have maintained a minimum 75 percent overall average.

Each student must choose to concentrate in either Mathematics or in one of the following sciences: Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Earth Sciences or Physics. For all students, the BSc (Pass)/BEd program combines a focus on contemporary science and mathematics with the development and application of pedagogical techniques.

Because the BSc (Pass)/BEd program integrates teacher education courses with academic courses, the student should note that the Pre-service 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 (Pass)/BEd program will not have credit in Pre-service Education courses applied to an undergraduate degree. Students should note that credits for the Concurrent BSc (Pass)/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 Pre-service Departments.

Students may apply to enter year 2 if their overall year 1 average is 75 percent or above and their year 1 program has closely matched that of the year 1 course requirements of the BSc (Pass)/BEd program. A Profile Questionnaire is required. It is available on the Concurrent Education website from April 1. The program has a limited enrolment and therefore admission into year 2 is limited.

Successful graduates will receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Integrated Studies and a Bachelor of Education degree. After graduation from the BSc (Pass)/BEd program, students may proceed to an Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Integrated Studies. 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. In addition to successful completion of a teacher education program, teacher candidates will be required by the Ministry of Education of Ontario to pass an Ontario teacher-qualifying test.

Ontario College of Teachers Criminal Records Screening Policy
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 practise 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.

Program Notes
  1. CHYS 2F10 has a placement in the schools and must be taken during the Fall/Winter Session.
  2. Practice teaching may have to be scheduled in May and June of year 4.
  3. The elective credit should be taken in spring, summer or evenings to allow for practice teaching in year 4. ENGL or HIST recommended if not taken in year 1.
  4. MATH 2P90, 2P93, 3P90 and 3P93 are offered alternate years and must be taken when offered.
  5. Students with a minimum 70 percent in OAC or Grade 12 U Chemistry take CHEM 1F92. They may not take CHEM 1P00 without permission from the Department, which is granted only in exceptional cases. Students without the prerequisite for CHEM 1F92 may substitute CHEM 1P00 and one-half ERSC or BIOL credit numbered 2(alpha)00 or above.
  6. In all 20 credit degree programs, at least 12 credits must be numbered 2(alpha)00 or above, six of which must be numbered 2(alpha)90 or above and of these, three must be numbered 3(alpha)90 or above. In all 15 credit degree programs, at least seven credits must be numbered 2(alpha)00 or above, three of which must be numbered 2(alpha)90 or above.

Honours Program

Students may register for an Honours program in Integrated Studies after completing their BSc (Pass)/BEd with a concentration in Biological Sciences or Mathematics.

BSc (Pass)/BEd students with a concentration in Chemistry, Earth Sciences or Physics should consult with those departments regarding an Honours degree.
