2019: My art therapy program helps at-risk students foster a love of higher learning. – Augustine Obeng, Faculty of Education York University students are ambitious, engaged and have the academic learning and real-world experience they need to make an impact on the world. yorku.ca/mytime Bachelor of Education We offer two teacher education programs — Concurrent and Consecutive — leading to a Bachelor of Education (BEd) degree and a recommendation to the Ontario College of Teachers for an Ontario Certificate of Registration. Our Concurrent BEd, to which you can apply from high school for select Faculties or after completing one year of university study, allows you to work toward your education degree while at the same time completing most other York undergraduate degrees. As a Concurrent BEd student, you work simultaneously to complete both your undergraduate degree and professional teaching program. Ontario high school applicants can be considered for the Concurrent BEd if they have been admitted to one of six faculties at York (Environmental Studies, Fine Arts, Glendon, Health, Liberal Arts & Professional Studies, Science, and Lassonde School of Engineering) and submitted all required documents by the deadline date (April 11, 2014). Concurrent BEd students can also specialize in French, Jewish, Indigenous, International and Technological teacher education. The Jewish Teacher option prepares you to teach Hebrew and Jewish studies in public and Jewish day schools. The French option, with most classes taught at Glendon, is for those who wish to teach in immersion, core, or extended French classrooms. For Indigenous Teacher Education, you need to complete Issues in Indigenous Education in your first year at university. You can also specialize in International Education by completing two internationally-focused elective courses, a program-based international experience, and a related co-curricular activity (32 hours of work). Technological Education is open to individuals enrolled in or who have completed a related applied field. All teacher candidates pursuing certification at the Intermediate/Senior level must have or will be completing a fouryear honours applied degree. As a full-time Consecutive student, you study over one extended academic year once you complete your undergraduate degree.* This program is offered at several off-campus locations in and around the Greater Toronto Area with teaching subjects taken at the Keele campus for Intermediate/Senior teacher candidates. Various locations are available. Applicants can also complete the Consecutive program on a part-time basis spanning three years. If you have already completed an undergraduate degree, you qualify to study in the full- or part-time consecutive program.
