General Information Go to top of document
Administrative Assistant Mona Lavoie 905-688-5550, extension 4226 Welch Hall 8A http://www.brocku.ca/childandyouthstudies/ http://concurrent.ed.brocku.ca The Department of Child and Youth Studies and the Faculty of Education co-operate in offering a concurrent four-year program combining a (Pass) Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree with a Bachelor of Education (BEd) for students interested in teaching at the Primary/Junior level (grades K-6). Students in the program must be registered full-time and follow the prescribed program. Any exceptions must have the approval of the Director. Students must maintain a minimum 75 percent overall average each year in all academic grade-marked courses. Application forms for the BA Child and Youth Studies (CHYS)/BEd program are available on the Concurrent Education website from April 1. The forms must be completed and returned to the office by June 1. Late applications will not be accepted. Students in the CHYS BA/BEd program should consult the Director of Concurrent Education Programs regarding program requirements and continuance in the program. For further information about the CHYS BA/BEd program contact the Office of Concurrent Education Programs. Because the CHYS BA/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 BA. For this reason, a student who transfers out of the CHYS BA/BEd program may not have credit in Pre-service Education courses applied to an undergraduate degree. Students should note that credits for the concurrent CHYS BA/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. Successful graduates of the Child and Youth Studies program will receive a Bachelor of Arts Pass 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.

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.
