Concurrent Education Academic Overview 

  • Two degrees at the same time: Bachelor’s in Arts, Fine Art, Music or Science and a Bachelor of Education.

  • 5 years, with education courses and in-school placements completed in years 1-3, and an additional summer term in year 5 (ending in August).  Queen's graduates are out into the job market one year early.

  • For both Primary-Junior (JK-Grade 6) and Intermediate-Senior (Grades 7-12) (decided by students at the end of year 1).

  • In addition to placements in Years 1, 2 and 3, candidates complete 13-17 weeks of placements in Year 5. This includes a three week alternative practicum that can be done outside a school setting and anywhere in the world as long as it is related to the program.

  • Travel fellowships support education-related travel outside Canada for alternative practicum placements.

  • You will choose a concentration in Year 5, such as Teaching At-Risk Children or Adolescents, International Education, Exceptional Learners, Arts in Education, Drama in Society, Assessment and Evaluation, etc. You may instead choose to apply to a Program Track. Our Program Tracks are Aboriginal Teacher EducationArtist in Community Education, and Outdoor Experiential Education.
