The Faculty of Education, Queen's University, offers a number of pre-service Teacher Education programs leading to the granting of a Bachelor of Education (BEd) or Diploma in Education (DipEd).
Students apply in their last year of secondary school for entrance into an undergraduate program called the Concurrent Education Program. In this program, students take courses towards an Arts and Science degree and an Education degree. By the end of five years, students end up with two degrees, one in their Arts or Science, and one in Education. Students may apply to one or both Concurrent Education programs.
Students registered the BMath Honours Co-op or BCS Honours Co-op degree at the University of Waterloo may apply to the Queen's-Waterloo Joint program in their second year. By the end of five years, candidates end up with two degrees, one in Mathematics or Computer Science from the University of Waterloo, and one in Education (BEd) from Queen’s University. The program prepares graduates to teach mathematics and a second subject (normally Computer Studies, Science-Biology, Science-Chemistry or Science-Physics) in secondary schools in Ontario.Specific information about the application process is outlined for each Concurrent Education program, as applications are submitted separately for each program of interest:
