General Information Go to top of document
Administrative Assistant Mona Lavoie 905-688-5550, extension 4226 Welch Hall 8A http://www.arnie.pec.brocku.ca/deptphysed/ http://concurrent.ed.brocku.ca The Department of Physical Education and Kinesiology and the Faculty of Education co-operate in offering a concurrent five-year program combining a Bachelor of Physical Education (BPhEd) (Honours) 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 75 percent overall average each year in all academic grade-marked courses. Application forms for the BPhEd (Honours)/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. Students in the BPhEd (Honours)/BEd program should consult the Director of Concurrent Education Programs regarding program requirements and continuance in the program. Students are strongly recommended to take an emergency First Aid/CPR course. Because the BPhEd (Honours)/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 BPhEd. For this reason, a student who transfers out of the BPhEd (Honours)/BEd program may not have credit in Pre-service Education courses applied to an undergraduate degree. Students should note that credits for the concurrent BPhEd (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 Pre-service departments. Successful graduates of the program will receive a Bachelor of Physical Education honours degree and a Bachelor of Education degree. The Department of Physical Education and Kinesiology is accredited through the Canadian Council of University Physical Education and Kinesiology Administrators. 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.

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 groundsfor 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.
