Before we can consider your application, you’ll need to meet the admission requirements.
Some Colleges in Alberta offer the first two years of the Combined Degrees program. If that sounds like you:
Whether you are transferring from a College or a University, if you don’t have the required 20 courses completed, or if you are not successful in gaining admission into the Faculty of Education, you could still be admitted into the pre-Education Combined Degrees program where you’ll continue to take courses in your first degree.
Another great thing about the U of L is that you have the chance to take 12 courses that interest you outside of your major. In lots of cases, this will give you a secondary interest and you’ll have taken enough elective courses in one subject that you can declare a teachable school minor. That gives you even more breadth as a teacher, especially if you choose to teach at the elementary level. If you’re not too sure how to do this, an Academic Advisor in your faculty can help you choose the right courses.
To complete The Bachelor of Education portion of the Combined Degrees, you have to satisfy all of the requirements of the program which consists of a minimum of 20 semester education courses:
At the end of this journey, you’ll have about 28 weeks of teaching under your belt. This means you can apply for teacher certification to teach Kindergarten to Grade 12 in the Province of Alberta. If you’d like to teach in any other province, you’re qualified to do so but you’ll have to complete some paperwork through that province’s teacher certification process.
