Complete two university degrees at the same time in order to become a qualified teacher in Ontario. To be considered for the Concurrent BEd program students must be admitted to and eligible to continue in an undergraduate program in one of York University’s other Faculties:
- Faculty of Environmental and Urban Change
- Faculty of Education - BA Educational Studies *The BA (Educational Studies) does not lead to teacher certification
- Glendon students who are preparing to teach French as a Second Language (FSL) in all teaching levels can apply to join the cohort that is held on Glendon campus. Students in this cohort may complete the FSL option.
- Glendon students who are preparing to teach subjects other than FSL can apply to the concurrent program that is offered on the Keele campus
- Lassonde School of Engineering
- Liberal Arts & Professional Studies
- School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design
While co-registered in the two Faculties, students' combined degree program is subject to the approval of the two Faculties. Students pursuing their BEd also work towards the completion of a undergraduate degree.
Students are carefully selected on the basis of academic achievement, inclusiveness, experience and personal characteristics relevant to the teaching profession, as articulated in the application. The BEd degree is awarded concurrently only in conjunction with an academic degree as described above.
UPDATE: As of fall 2020, the Faculty of Education no longer offered the Bachelor of Education (BEd) Concurrent Upper Year Entry. Current York students who are interested in the BEd may apply to the Consecutive option - Bachelor of Education. Please note that the Concurrent Direct Entry model (Admission from high school) is continuing.
How to Apply
Students can apply to our Bachelor of Education (BEd) program in a concurrent delivery model directly from secondary school (Direct Entry model) while also applying to select Faculties at the same time.
