Modern Languages Requirements

If You Already Have a Degree

If you wish to enter the Faculty of Education with a major in Modern Languages Education, you must possess a recognized degree which includes a major in French, German, French/German, or French/Spanish.

In addition, all other prerequisites for admission must be met.

At the time of admission, the nature of the applicant's degree is examined, and a program is planned and approved by the Faculty of Education. If the approved degree contains the necessary components, including a completed teaching major, both certification and B.Ed. requirements may be met upon completion of 20 courses in Education.

Note: Modern Language Education Majors in French, French/German, French/Spanish and German must have in their first degree a study experience similar to French 2250, Spanish 2250, or German 2250, or equivalent, prior to graduation with an After Degree B.Ed.

Combined Degrees -- B.A. / B.Ed.

Language is for communication, and initially that is the goal of all language learning. With the help of scholarships and bursaries for optional immersion study at another university, students of French and German develop competence in speaking, writing, reading and listening. But language is also for thinking, and for expressing concepts and understandings of life. In this, each language has its own strengths. At the higher levels, language study is a way of looking in on life itself from a different standpoint than our own.

Students may meet the Modern Languages Education major requirements by completing a major in French or French/Spanish.

Note: Admission to the Major in German/Modern Languages Education and French/German/Modern Languages for the B.A./B.Ed. has been suspended, beginning May 1, 2013 (i.e. for the 2013/2014 academic year and thereafter, until further notice).
