1.3 The Faculty Then and Now

The Faculty of Education traces its beginnings back to 1857 when the McGill Normal School was established at McGill by agreement between the University and the Government of Quebec. In 1907, it was renamed the School for Teachers and was moved to Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue where it became part of Macdonald College. At this time also, the Macdonald Chair of Education was endowed at McGill University and a Department of Education was created in the Faculty of Arts and Science for the purpose of preparing candidates for the High School Diploma. The first graduate program was inaugurated in 1930, and in 1953 the University established the B.Ed. degree.

In 1955 the School for Teachers and the Department of Education were combined to become, within the Faculty of Arts and Science, the Institute of Education. To these was joined, in 1957, the McGill School of Physical Education (founded in 1912).

The Institute was reconstituted as the Faculty of Education in 1965 and the work continued both on the McGill and the Macdonald Campus. The St. Joseph Teachers College and the Faculty of Education were amalgamated in 1970 and relocated in a new building on the McGill Campus. In 1996, the Graduate School of Library and Information Studies became affiliated with the Faculty.

The Faculty serves approximately 2,000 students enrolled in undergraduate, graduate and professional development programs.The Faculty is organized into three departments and the Graduate School of Library and Information Studies. In addition, the Faculty has a number of research and service centres, several of an interdisciplinary nature.

Like other faculties of education in Quebec and Canada, the Faculty has had a traditional role in the initial training of teachers and leaders in education-allied occupations. It is also concerned with constructing knowledge through research and scholarship and with providing professional development services to the wider educational community.

In recent years a number of links have been established with counterparts in other countries for teaching, research and development purposes. Current active projects, some of which involve students as well as staff, include those in Japan, Indonesia, South Africa and Mexico.

2 Faculty Programs

The Faculty of Education offers three different kinds of programs.

Undergraduate Programs

For those wishing to become teachers, the Faculty offers programs leading to the Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) degree. For those already holding a university degree, advanced standing may be given in the B.Ed. programs. A B.Sc. (Kinesiology) is also offered by the Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education.

Programs of Professional Development

For qualified teachers wishing to enhance their knowledge and skills, the Faculty offers a wide range of programs of professional development leading to specialized Certificates and Diplomas. Most courses that are required to complete these programs are offered in the evenings and in the summer.

Graduate Programs

The Faculty offers graduate programs for those already holding a university degree who wish to pursue advanced study and research leading to masters and doctoral degrees in various fields of education and psychology, and library and information studies.

Undergraduate Programs of initial teacher education are described in this Calendar, programs of professional development are described in the 2004-05 Centre for Continuing Education Calendar, and graduate programs are described in the 2004-05 Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Calendar.

2.1 Undergraduate Education Programs

Code of Professional Conduct

Faculty of Education programs have professional components and field placements. In all aspects of any program, on campus and off, students are expected to demonstrate ethical, responsible, and professional behaviour in the performance of their duties, to conduct themselves in accordance with the law (e.g., Youth Protection), and to meet the expectations of schools, boards and other host institutions receiving them for field placements. This applies to all aspects of professional conduct, including but not limited to respect for persons, property and confidentiality, appropriate dress and punctuality. Failure to meet these expectations, regardless of performance in courses or other formal program requirements, will be taken into account in the assessment of the students' overall academic standing in the program and, in the most serious instance, may result in a requirement to withdraw from the program.

Note: Faculty of Education Students

English Language Requirement

The Quebec Ministry of Education and the Faculty of Education require that all students in teacher education programs demonstrate their proficiency in the language of instruction. To fulfill this obligation all students must successfully pass an English Language Proficiency Test which will be administered in the December examination period of their first term. Students who fail the Test the first time and who wish to remain in the program will have adequate opportunities to improve the quality of their English language skills. All students who were unsuccessful in their first Test will be required to take the Test a second time the following December. Students who fail the second Test will be placed in unsatisfactory standing and must withdraw from the program.

Note: This requirement does not apply to the Certificate in Education for First Nations and Inuit program offered by OFNIE.

Language Requirement for Applicants to B.Ed. TESL, TFSL Programs

Applicants to the B.Ed. TESL or TFSL programs are required to pass written and oral language tests in order to fulfill the admission requirements of these two programs.

2.1.1 Undergraduate Programs

The Faculty of Education offers the following Undergraduate programs. Details of each program may be found in this Calendar under the headings of the appropriate department.

Normally, Bachelor of Education programs may only be followed on a full-time day basis.

Admission is competitive and it may not be possible to accept all applicants who meet the minimum requirements.

A student who successfully completes any of the above programs, (and meets other requirements set out by the MEQ (Ministère de l'Éducation du Québec) is recommended for certification as a teacher in the province of Quebec; see section 2.1.2 "Quebec Teacher Certification".

The program entails a comprehensive understanding of human movement. Kinesiology is a multidisciplinary field viewing human movement from social, historical, psychological, or biological perspectives. The program provides students with a breadth of theoretical knowledge as well as an opportunity to explore related areas in greater depth, including minor programs available elsewhere within the University. Students may opt for either General or Applied emphasis, with an Honours program available for particularly strong students.

2.1.2 Quebec Teacher Certification

Please note that graduates of teacher education programs are recommended by the University for Quebec Certification to the Quebec Ministry of Education (Ministère de l'Éducation du Québec) (MEQ).

In addition, the following section provides regulations specific to Faculty of Education students.

Note:

Each student in the Faculty of Education must be aware of and comply with the Faculty regulations as stated in this Calendar. While departmental and Faculty advisers and staff are always available to give advice and guidance, the ultimate responsibility for complete and correct course selection and registration, for compliance with and completion of program and degree requirements, and for the observance of regulations and deadlines, and for academic records, rests with the student. It is the student's responsibility to seek guidance. Misunderstanding will not be accepted as cause for dispensation from any regulation, deadline, program or degree requirement.

Note: Faculty of Education Students

English Language Requirement

The Quebec Ministry of Education and the Faculty of Education require that all students in teacher education programs demonstrate their proficiency in the language of instruction. To fulfill this obligation all students must successfully pass an English Language Proficiency Test which will be administered in the December examination period of their first term.

Students who fail the Test the first time and who wish to remain in the program will have adequate opportunities to improve the quality of their English language skills. All students who were unsuccessful in their first Test will be required to take the Test a second time the following December. Students who fail the second Test will be placed in unsatisfactory standing and must withdraw from the program.

Language Requirement for Applicants to B.Ed., TESL, TFSL Programs

Applicants to the B.Ed. TESL or TFSL programs are required to pass written and oral language tests in order to fulfill the admission requirements of these two programs.

Advising

Students must consult an academic adviser to obtain advice and approval of their course selection. Students accepted with advanced standing must present their transcripts and letters of admission at the Advising session. For a detailed description of advising and registration procedures, students should refer to two booklets which will be sent to them upon their acceptance: Welcome to McGill, sent by the Admissions, Recruitment and Registrar's Office, and the "Undergraduate Handbook for New Students", sent by the Faculty. (This document is also available on the website  www.mcgill.ca/edu-sao.)

Advising for returning students takes place in March for the coming academic year. Students should refer to the department handbooks for returning students, available in early March.

Note:

Students are reminded that advisors are available to assist them with program planning; however, students are ultimately responsible for their academic record.

3.1 Course Information

Course Load

Undergraduate Education programs leading to certification can only be followed on a full-time basis and part-time study is not normally permitted. Students must take a minimum of twelve (12) credits per term unless the Associate Dean (Student Affairs and Physical Resources) gives them special permission. Special permission must be requested prior to the end of Course Add/Drop period.

Any absence or reduction in course load that may impact the regular progression of a student's program must have written approval by the Associate Dean (Student Affairs and Physical Resources).

For Bachelor of Education students, the normal course load per term is 15 credits. Students whose GPA is above 3.00 may take up to 18 credits per term. Overloads are not allowed in major field experience terms.

Time Limit for Completion of Degrees

Students are expected to complete their program in no more than five (5) years after their initial registration for the degree. Students who enter in a freshman year become subject to these regulations one year after their initial registration. Students who exceed these limits must apply to the Faculty for permission to continue.

Course Requirements

All required and complementary courses used to fulfill program requirements must be completed with a grade of C or better. A failure (F, J, KF, WF) in any level of student teaching/field experience places a student in unsatisfactory standing requiring withdrawal from the University. Further details on requirements for student teaching/ field experience are listed in section 3.3 "Student Teaching/Field Experience".

Course Registration

Students must register on-line using Minerva, McGill's Web-based information system. The registration system is unable to verify whether or not Faculty regulations are respected; therefore, if in doubt, students must meet with their adviser within the course change deadlines.

Note:

Students must register for both Fall and Winter terms at the same time. Students are required to be registered for Field Experience courses at least two months prior to commencement of the term. Students who are not officially registered by this date risk the possibility of not being placed for their Field Experience assignment. First-year students must be registered for their first-year Field Experience course by the end of August.

Courses offered through Continuing Education and Summer Studies

A wide range of courses, enabling students either to acquire prerequisite credits or to earn credit towards their degree, is offered through Continuing Education and Summer Studies.

Courses Taken as Transfer Credit

Students may, with the approval of their advisor and the Student Affairs Office, elect to register at another university for three (3) credits, or in exceptional cases, six (6) credits per term towards their degree. This privilege will be granted if there are valid academic reasons. Only grades of C or better are accepted for transfer credit. Grades of C-, P, S are not acceptable for transfer credit. Please refer to section 5.5 "Transfer Credits", for further information on Examinations. Students are not permitted to take transfer courses during their graduating term.

Courses taken under Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory Option

Required or Complementary courses cannot be taken under this option. Please consult Courses Taken under the Satisfactory/ Unsatisfactory (S/U) Option.

Course Equivalencies

For the Bachelor of Education programs, the following 3-credit courses are considered equivalent:
EDEC 410 Multi-cultured/Multi-racial Class
EDER 464 Intercultural Education
EDEE 441 First Nations and Inuit Education
(Only one of these courses may be taken for credit.)

Also for the Bachelor of Education programs, the following 3-credit courses are considered equivalent:
EDES 201 Effective Written Communication
EDEC 202 Effective Communication
EDEC 203 Communication in Education
(Only one of these courses may be taken for credit.) Credit for Elementary Computing ACOM 150, offered by the Faculty of Arts, will not be given if taken concurrently with or after EDPT 200.

Dress Regulations

All students enrolled in teacher certification programs are advised that school boards and individual schools may have regulations concerning acceptable attire. Students are advised to adhere to any such regulations.

Students in Kinesiology and Physical Education programs are required to wear appropriate clothing for activity courses as approved by the instructor(s). Students may also be responsible for providing some items of personal equipment.

3.2 Attendance

The pattern of attendance necessary to satisfy the requirements of course work will vary according to the nature of different subjects and the professors' approaches to them. A course constitutes a contractual, professional, academic and social obligation between the professor and the student. It is, therefore, the responsibility of the professor to make students aware of the unique requirements of a course and the manner in which they may be fulfilled, and the responsibility of the student to meet these requirements.

Please note that specific attendance policies apply for student teaching/field experience courses offered by the Office of Student Teaching as well as for skill and technique courses offered by the Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education.

Students enrolled in Teacher Education Programs should be aware that Field Experiences will not be interrupted during the University-scheduled Study Break. Refer to the Calendar of Dates.

Students will not be allowed into intensive (6 to 7-week blocked) Education courses after the first 6 hours of class time.

3.3 Student Teaching/Field Experience

Code of Ethics for Student Teachers

A. PREAMBLE - A STUDENT CENTRED PERSPECTIVE

Mandate:

A joint subcommittee consisting of members from two standing committees of the Faculty of Education (Faculty of Education Ethical Review Board and Student Standing) was created to develop a Code of Ethics for Student Teachers and to examine the ways in which this Code will be communicated to students, faculty members and educational partners.

Goals and Rationale:

The interests of the two Standing Committees of the Faculty of Education in promoting appropriate ethical and professional conduct have led us to develop the following Code of Ethics for Student Teachers. This code seeks to respond to and address the following needs:

Context of an Ethics Framework for Student Teachers

The principles and norms guiding ethical conduct are developed within an ever-evolving complex societal context, elements of which include the need for reflective action and ethical principles.

Education is premised on a fundamental moral commitment to advance and construct knowledge and to ensure human understanding and respect for individual and collective well being and integrity.

The moral imperative of respect translates into the following ethical principles that assume a student-centred perspective as articulated in the Quebec Curriculum Reform and Competencies outlined for Teacher Education.

B. ACADEMIC FREEDOM AND RESPONSIBILITIES

Teachers enjoy, and should continue to enjoy important freedoms and privileges. However, with freedoms come responsibilities and ethical challenges. This Code of Ethics is in keeping with the philosophy and spirit of the New Directions that are embedded in the document Teacher Training: Orientations, Professional Competencies (Ministère de l'Education 2001) and the reflective practice literature.

The role of the teacher and the contexts of teaching have changed. Thus, new resources (knowledge, skills, attitudes) are required to practice the profession and meet the challenges of teaching and learning in whatever contexts student teachers may find themselves and to engage in professional development individually and with others.

C. ETHICS AND LAW

"Teaching is governed by a legal and regulatory framework" (MEQ p. 120). The law affects and regulates the standards and norms of teaching behaviours in a variety of ways such as respecting privacy, confidentiality, intellectual property, competence. Human rights legislation prohibits discrimination and recognizes equal treatment as fundamental to human dignity and well being. Teachers should respect the spirit of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms particularly the sections dealing with life, liberty and the security of the person as well as those involving equality and discrimination and the Education Act that sets out the obligations and rights of teachers.

D. GUIDING ETHICAL PRINCIPLES

Ethical Student Teachers should respect the following guiding ethical principles:

1. Respect for Human Dignity

2. Respect for Vulnerable Persons

3. Respect for Confidentiality and Privacy

4. Respect for Justice

5. Respect for Safety of Students

6. Respect for Existing Ethical Codes and Professional Standards

7. Balancing Harm and Benefits

E. PUTTING PRINCIPLES INTO PRACTICE: VENUES FOR COMMUNICATION

More than one principle may apply to a given case or situation.

For meaningful and effective implementation of these principles, they must be widely communicated and applied in appropriate contexts.

The Code of Ethics will be published on the Faculty of Education Web site with links from department Web pages to the Code.

The following venues will be used for communicating the Code of Ethics to Students, Faculty and the Educational community:

Students must be in satisfactory academic standing in order to do any level field experience course. Before students can be placed for their third- and fourth- year field experiences, they must have completed all required courses for these field experiences. Field experience courses can only be done in sequence.

Students are required to be registered on Minerva for Field Experience courses at least two months prior to commencement of the term. Students who are not officially registered by this date risk the possibility of not being placed for their Field Experience assignment. First-year students must be registered for their first- year Field Experience course by the end of August.

Normally, all field experiences must be done in the province of Quebec in English schools. Students in the B.Ed. TESL programs are normally placed in French schools in the province of Quebec.

Failure (F, J, KF, WF) in any field experience places a student in unsatisfactory standing, requiring withdrawal from the teacher education program. Therefore, students who fail their field experience will be required to withdraw from the program, as well as from the related professional courses at the time of failure. Students may be allowed to continue with the remaining components of their program until the end of the academic year.

The Director of the Office of Student Teaching has the authority to grant special permission for a student to repeat a field experience. This permission is granted for a student who experiences serious difficulties in a field experience but who has demonstrated some potential to successfully reach the required standard. In such cases the student will be granted a "D" grade and will be given the opportunity to register for the course during the next regularly scheduled session. This privilege will only be granted once in a student's program. The Director also has the authority to terminate a placement and assign a failing grade. A student may appeal this decision by making a formal application.

Students who transfer from the B.Ed. Kindergarten/Elementary to the B.Ed. Secondary program, or vice-versa, will not be required to repeat the first-year professional seminar or field experience.

Normally, all professional seminar and field experience courses will be taken in sequence. Exceptions must be approved by the Associate Dean (Student Affairs and Physical Resources).

Students with teaching experience acquired before entering the Bachelor of Education programs may, under certain circumstances, be granted exemption for the first-year professional seminar and field experience. Requests must be submitted with supporting documentation to the Director of the Office of Student Teaching upon admission to the program.

Students are expected to attend school regularly all day and to be on time every day of the field experience. If, for any reason, student teachers are unable to attend their school, they must immediately notify the Office of Student Teaching at (514) 398-7046 and the cooperating teacher in the school to which they are assigned. Student teachers will be required to make up for absences.

A conscious effort is made to place students within reasonable traveling distance, but this cannot be guaranteed. Therefore, each student must budget a sum of money to travel to and from a school each day of the field experience.

The Office of Student Teaching has sole responsibility for Student Teaching placements. Final decisions regarding field placements are the responsibility of the Director of Student Teaching.

Students should be aware that field experiences continue during the University-scheduled Study Break. Refer to the Calendar of Dates. In addition, attendance at scheduled University courses is required regardless of any school breaks during the field experience.

3.4 Grading and Examination

Method of Evaluation

Every instructor shall provide with every course outline a description of the means of evaluation to be used in the course. This includes:

- whether there will be a final examination in the course

- how term work will affect the final mark in the course

- how term work will be distributed through the term

- whether there will be a supplemental examination in the course, and if so, whether term work will be included in the supplemental grade.

Academic Integrity

The Code of Student Conduct and Disciplinary Procedures includes sections on plagiarism and cheating. The Code is included in the Student Rights and Responsibilities Handbook. Please refer to General Policies and Information, Academic Integrity, for further information.

Incomplete Grades

Instructors may grant an extension for the submission of required term work, if they feel the student's request is reasonable. In such cases the student is responsible for submitting an application for an extension (forms are available from the Student Affairs Office), along with supporting documents for the instructor's approval before the end of the course. The deadline date for which the work is to be completed must be included. In such cases, the instructor will submit a grade of "K" (incomplete). The maximum extension for the submission of grades to the Student Affairs Office is as follows:

Fall Term Courses - April 30

Winter Term Courses - July 30

Summer Term Courses - October 30

NB: Students' deadlines for submitting their work must be sufficiently in advance of these dates to ensure that the work can be graded and the mark submitted on time. If marks to clear the K grades have not been submitted to the Student Affairs Office by the above dates, the K is automatically changed to a KF which counts as an F in the GPA.

No additional extensions may be granted without the approval of the Associate Dean, Student Affairs.

Evaluation of Student Teachers - Field Experience Courses

Students are responsible for familiarizing themselves with the objectives, evaluation criteria and forms for each level of Field Experience. Detailed information is included in the Student Teaching Handbook, available on the Web site www.mcgill.ca/ost/handbooks. A Failure in any field experience places a student in unsatisfactory standing, requiring withdrawal from the teacher education program. Students with a grade of D who wish to remain in the program will be required to repeat the Field Experience course during the next normally scheduled session. Students will only be permitted to repeat a Field Experience course once during their program.

Evaluation of Language Proficiency

All students in the Faculty of Education programs must successfully pass an English Language Proficiency Test which will be administered in the December examination period of their first term. Students who fail the Test the first time and who wish to remain in the program will have appropriate opportunities to improve the quality of their English language skills. All students who were unsuccessful in their first Test, will be required to take the Test a second time the following December. Students who fail the second Test will be placed in unsatisfactory standing and must withdraw from the program.

Note: This requirement does not apply to students in the B.Ed. TFSL or Certificate in Education for First Nations and Inuit programs.

Supplemental Examinations

Students may apply for permission to write a supplemental examination for certain courses that have formal examinations. The following conditions apply:

Students should be aware of the following:

Reassessment and Rereads

In accordance with the Charter of Student Rights, and subject to the conditions stated therein, students have the right to consult any written submission for which they have received a mark and the right to discuss this submission with the examiner. If, after such discussion, students want to have a formal final examination or major paper reread, they must apply in writing to the Student Affairs Office.

Application for rereads must be made by March 31 for courses ending in the Fall term and by September 30 for courses ending in the Winter term. Students are assessed a fee for formal rereads of a final examination or major paper, which will be refunded only if the reread results in an increased letter grade. Requests for rereads in more than one course per term will not be permitted. Grades may be raised, lowered or unchanged as the result of a reread.

Application for rereads in courses in the Faculty of Education are subject to the deadlines, rules and regulations of the relevant faculty.

Any request to have term work re-evaluated must first be made directly to the instructor concerned.

Examinations

Formal final examinations are held during an examination period following the term in which the course is given (fall and winter terms only). The dates of the examination periods are listed in the Calendar of Dates. Students must not make travel arrangements to leave Montreal prior to the scheduled end of any examination period. Not all courses have final examinations; standing in these courses is determined on the basis of term work and class tests. Students should refer to the Examinations section of the Calendar, and the Web site www.mcgill.ca/student-records/exam for information about examinations.

3.5 Academic Standing

Academic standing is based primarily on students' cumulative grade point average (CGPA), but may also be affected by their term grade point average (TGPA). Academic standing, which is assessed after the end of term, determines if students will be allowed to continue their studies in the next term and if any conditions will be attached to their registration. Information about academic standing appears on records that are internal to McGill for the information of students and others, such as academic advisers.

Decisions about academic standing in the fall term are based only on grades that are available in January. Grades for courses in which students have deferred examinations and fall-term grades for courses that span the fall and winter terms do not affect academic standing for the fall term, even though they will ultimately affect students' fall TGPA. Therefore, academic standings for the fall term are designated as "interim" and should be interpreted as advisory. Interim standing decisions are mentioned below only if the rules for them differ from those for regular standing decisions.

Satisfactory/Interim Satisfactory Standing

Students in satisfactory standing may continue in their program.

Probationary/Interim Probationary Standing

Students in probationary standing may continue in their program, but must carry a reduced load (maximum 14 credits per term) and raise their TGPA and CGPA to return to satisfactory standing (see above). They should see their departmental adviser to discuss their course selection. Students in probationary standing are not permitted to take any level student teaching/field experience course during that academic year.

Students in interim probationary standing may continue in their program, but should evaluate their course load and reduce it as appropriate. They are strongly advised to consult a departmental adviser, before the withdrawal deadlines, about their course selection for the winter term.

Readmitted Unsatisfactory Standing

Students who were previously in unsatisfactory standing and who were readmitted to the Faculty by the Associate Dean or the Committee on Student Standing will have their standing changed to readmitted unsatisfactory standing. Their course load is specified in their letter of readmission as are the conditions they must meet to be allowed to continue in their program. They should see their departmental adviser to discuss their course selection.

Unsatisfactory/Interim Unsatisfactory Standing

Students in interim unsatisfactory standing may continue in their program, but should evaluate their course load and reduce it as appropriate. They are strongly advised to consult a departmental adviser, before the withdrawal deadlines, about their course selection for the winter term.

Students in unsatisfactory standing have failed to meet the minimum standards set by the Faculty, so they may not continue in their program.

Normally supplemental examinations are not permitted; however, students in unsatisfactory standing may appeal to the Associate Dean for permission to write a supplemental examination, clearly stating the reasons for special consideration and providing proof as appropriate.

Students in either the Concurrent B.Sc./B.Ed. or or B.Mus./B.Ed. program who receive an F or J in any Education Field Experience course are placed in unsatisfactory standing. Although they may complete their term, they are required to withdraw from the Concurrent program. They may, however, contact the Faculties of Science or Music regarding application to their general degrees.

Appeals for readmission by students in unsatisfactory standing should be addressed to the Associate Dean no later than May 1 for readmission to the fall term. Readmission will be considered only when proof of extenuating circumstances that affected academic performance can be provided (e.g., medical or other documentation). Students in unsatisfactory standing for the second time must withdraw permanently. Students who were placed in unsatisfactory standing due to a failure in student teaching/field experience cannot apply for readmission for at least one full year. Please see section 2.1.8 "Readmission".

Incomplete Standings

Standing awaits deferred or supplemental exams.
Must clear K's, L's or Supplementals.
Standing Incomplete.

Students with incomplete standings in the winter or summer term may register for the fall term, but their standing must be resolved by the end of the course-change period for that term; students whose incomplete standing changes to satisfactory, probationary, or interim unsatisfactory standing may continue in the program. Students whose standing changes to unsatisfactory standing may not continue in their program.

Students whose standing changes to unsatisfactory and who wish to ask for permission to continue in their program must make a request to the Associate Dean of Student Affairs as soon as they are placed in unsatisfactory standing. Readmission will be considered only when proof of extenuating circumstances that affected academic performance can be provided (e.g., medical or other documentation). (Please see section 2.1.8 "Readmission".)

Students whose standing is still incomplete by the end of course change period should immediately consult with the Student Affairs Office.

3.6 Graduation Requirements

To be eligible for a B.Ed. or the B.Sc. (Kinesiology) degree, students must fulfill all Faculty and program requirements. This includes completing the minimum credit requirements for the degree as stipulated in the letter of acceptance; obtaining a grade of C or better in all courses except electives; and achieving a minimum cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 2.00. Students must satisfactorily complete a minimum of 60 credits at McGill University towards the fulfillment of the degree requirements. In addition, students must complete specific components of their program at McGill.

Students enrolled in Kinesiology and Physical Education programs are required, before graduation, to show proof of certification in Standard Level Safety Oriented First Aid, and Level C in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, or equivalencies.

Students must complete the degree requirements within five (5) years of admission to a program of 90 credits or more, and within four (4) years of admission to a program of 60 credits. Students in the part-time B.Ed. for Certified Teachers and B.Ed. (Vocational) programs are allowed a maximum of 12 years to complete the requirements for the degree.

It is the student's responsibility to ensure that all Faculty requirements are met before graduation.

Early in their graduating year all students should check with their advisor to make sure that they will meet all program requirements in time for graduation. It is essential that students in their final year indicate the expected date of graduation on Minerva and verify this date on Minerva and on the verification forms. When a final year student changes the expected date of graduation, the student must notify the Student Affairs Office immediately. It is also the student's responsibility to complete the required waiver forms for teacher certification, and to check that his/her name appears on the graduation list. For further information, contact the Student Affairs Office at (514) 398-7042.

Students are not permitted to take courses outside McGill University during the last term prior to graduation. Students who fail to graduate as expected and who do not re-register must apply to the Associate Dean (Student Affairs and Physical Resources) to graduate. Application to graduate must be made sufficiently in advance of the expected graduation date to allow the Faculty to verify the student's record.

Information pertaining to the Convocation Ceremonies can be obtained on the McGill Website, www.mcgill.ca/secretariat/ convocations.

The Department of Integrated Studies in Education, created September 2001, incorporates the programs and staff previously associated with the Departments of Culture and Values in Education, Educational Studies, and Second Language Education.

The Department offers four-year programs for CEGEP graduates and five-year programs for out-of-province students leading to a B.Ed. Degree. The following programs are offered:

Bachelor of Education: Secondary Program (120 credits)

The aim of the B.Ed. Secondary is to prepare strong beginning teachers for the secondary school level. This integrated 120-credit program (150 credits for out-of-province students) consists of academic studies to provide background depth in subjects taught in the secondary school, professional studies centred on school-based practicum, supported by studies in pedagogy, curriculum and educational foundations. Students choose their teaching profiles from: English, Mathematics, Science and Technology, Social Sciences (History and Citizenship, and one of: Geography, Catholic Education, Protestant Education, or Moral Education).

Concurrent Bachelor of Education in Music/Bachelor of Music (Music Education) program (143/144 credits)

This program provides students with the opportunity to obtain a Bachelor of Music degree and a Bachelor of Education degree concurrently. The two degrees are awarded during the same convocation period.

Concurrent Bachelor of Science / Bachelor of Education (General Secondary) (135 credits)

This program provides students with the opportunity to attain a Bachelor of Science degree and a Bachelor of Education degree concurrently. The two degrees are awarded during the same convocation period.

Bachelor of Education (Kindergarten and Elementary) (120 credits)

This program applies to students admitted in September 2003.

This program leads to certification to teach children between the ages of 5 and 11 years. It consists of four years of full-time study requiring the completion of 120 credits (150 credits or five years for out-of-province students), of academic and professional courses and practica.

Options within the B.Ed. (Kindergarten and Elementary) program are:

Bachelor of Education In Teaching French as a Second Language (120 credits)

This program applies to students admitted prior to September 2003.

The four-year B.Ed. in Teaching French as a Second Language prepares specialist teachers to teach French as a second language in regular and immersion programs, at both the elementary and the secondary levels. This integrated 120-credit program (150 credits for out-of-province students) consists of academic and professional components. The academic components provide students with opportunities to study language and language learning from linguistic, social, cultural and psychological perspectives and to concentrate on one subject area taught at the secondary level or to familiarize them with at least two subjects taught at the elementary level. The professional components revolve around school-based field experiences which are supported by studies in pedagogy and educational foundations.

Baccalauréat en enseignement du français langue seconde (120 credits)

This four-year program prepares specialist teachers to teach French as a second language, in Core French programs, immersion programs, intensive programs and class d'accueil, at both the elementary and the secondary levels. Offered by the Department of Integrated Studies in Education jointly with the Université de Montréal.

Bachelor of Education in Teaching English as a Second Language (120/121 credits)

This program prepares specialist teachers to teach English as a second language at both the elementary level (including regular and intensive ESL) and the secondary level (including regular ESL and ESLA - English Second Language Arts). This integrated 120-credit program (150 credits for out-of province students) consists of academic and professional components. The academic components provide students with opportunities to develop a broad liberal education and to study language and language learning from linguistic, social, cultural and psychological perspectives. The professional components revolve around school-based field experiences which are supported by studies in pedagogy and educational foundations.

5.1.2 Concurrent Bachelor of Education in Music and Bachelor of Music (Music Education) Program

The Bachelor of Education in Music is an integrated four-year 120/121-credit program of initial teacher training that leads to certification as a teacher in the Province of Québec. When offered concurrently with the Bachelor of Music (Major in Music Education), the program offers students the opportunity to obtain a Bachelor of Education degree and a Bachelor of Music degree after the completion of 143/144 credits, normally five years (173/174 credits or six years for out-of-province students). The concurrent program combines academic studies in music, professional studies and field experience. The two degrees are awarded during the same convocation period.

Applicants to the music specialist teacher training program should apply to the Concurrent Bachelor of Education in Music/ Bachelor of Music (Music Education) program. Students who are already enrolled at McGill in the Bachelor of Music may apply for a transfer into the Concurrent program. Students who have partially completed a Bachelor of Music program are eligible to apply for advanced standing in the Concurrent program.

Application to the Concurrent B.Ed./B.Mus. program may be made on-line at www.mcgill.ca/applying. Information is available on that site or may be obtained from:
Admissions Office
McGill University
Faculty of Music
555 Sherbrooke Street West
Montreal, QC  H3A 1E3 Telephone: (514) 398-4546

Those who have completed a Bachelor of Music degree may apply for advanced standing in the Bachelor of Education in Music program. Application to the Bachelor of Education in Music may be made on-line at www.mcgill.ca/applying. Information is available on that site or may be obtained from:
Admissions, Recruitment and Registrar's Office
McGill University

Telephone: (514) 398-3910 Fax: (514) 398-4193

Program details are available from:
Professor Joan Russell, Program Director
Department of Integrated Studies in Education
Telephone: (514) 398-2447.

The components of the 143/144-credit Concurrent Bachelor of Education in Music/Bachelor of Music (Music Education) are as follows:
53/54 professional credits,
78 music credits,
12 elective credits.

Students who wish to complete only the Bachelor of Education in Music have the option of doing so after the successful completion of the first two years of the concurrent program and MUIN 321 concentration exam or equivalent. Students who decide to complete only a Bachelor of Music may transfer at any time into the Bachelor of Music, Faculty Program.

Students who opt for the Bachelor of Education in Music would be required to complete 61music credits, 6 elective credits, and 53/54 professional credits from the program given below, with the following notes:

5.1.3 Concurrent Bachelor of Science (Major or Major Concentration with a Minor for Teachers) and Bachelor of Education Secondary Program

Coordinator, Faculty of Education
Professor Marc Schwartz
Coordinator, Faculty of Science
Professor Richard Harris

Students entering the Concurrent B.Sc./B.Ed. Program in September 2004 will follow the program described below.

Students registered in the Concurrent B.Sc./B.Ed. Program before September 2004 should refer to the program described in the 2003-04 Undergraduate Programs Calendar.

This program has been designed to provide students with the opportunity to attain a Bachelor of Science degree and a Bachelor of Education degree after 135 credits of study (165 credits for students who have not completed the basic sciences, see Note below).

To be admitted to the Concurrent program, students must satisfy the regular admission requirements of the Faculties of Science and Education. Normally, students will be admitted to both components of the Concurrent program simultaneously, however, it is possible for students in a B.Sc. or B.Ed. program to transfer into the Concurrent program at any time. Students in the Concurrent program may change to either a B.Sc. or a B.Ed., but may not subsequently switch back to the Concurrent program.

Note:

Science students are normally admitted to a four-year program requiring the completion of 120 credits, but advanced standing of up to 30 credits may be granted to students who obtain satisfactory results in International Baccalaureate, French Baccalaureate, Advanced Levels, Advanced Placement tests, or the Diploma of Collegial Studies (DCS). Quebec students with a DCS in Science are granted 30 credits advanced standing and will have normally completed the equivalent of, and are therefore exempt from, the basic science courses in biology, chemistry, mathematics and statistics, and physics. Students with satisfactory results in International Baccalaureate, French Baccalaureate and Advanced Levels, and Advanced Placement tests may be exempt from some or all of the basic science courses.

Students in the Concurrent B.Sc./B.Ed. who receive an F or J in any Field Experience course are placed in unsatisfactory standing. Although they may complete their term, they are required to withdraw from the Concurrent Program. However, they may apply to transfer to the conventional B.Sc. program as outlined in Faculty of Science, Science for Teachers.

The two degrees are awarded during the same convocation period.

The two components of the Concurrent Program are the B.Ed. Secondary Program and one of the B.Sc. programs described in the Faculty of Science, Science for Teachers:

The requirements for the B.Ed. component are as described in the Bachelor of Education Secondary Program, with the following exceptions:

5.1.4 Bachelor of Education Kindergarten and Elementary Program

The four-year program begins with the foundation courses in the first term and has a higher concentration of academic courses in the first two years. The professional courses and practicum have a heavier weight in the final two years. The practicum consists of school-based experiences and a series of professional seminars that provide an opportunity for students to reflect on that experience in a systematic way and with the guidance of a tutor.

5.2 Programs for First Nations and Inuit

The following programs are offered in Aboriginal communities for Aboriginal teachers through the:

Faculty of Education
Office of First Nations and Inuit Education (OFNIE)
3700 McTavish Street, Room 614
Montreal, Quebec  H3A 1Y2 
Telephone: (514) 398-4533		Fax: (514) 398-2553
Website: www.education.mcgill.ca/ofnie 

5.2.1 Certificate in Education for First Nations and Inuit

(This program replaces the former Certificate in Native and Northern Education.)

This 60-credit program provides an opportunity for Algonquin, Cree, Inuit, Mi'kmaq and Mohawk people to become qualified as teachers. It is offered on a part-time basis in Aboriginal communities throughout Quebec in collaboration with the Cree School Board, the Kativik School Board, and various Mi'kmaq, Mohawk and Algonquin education authorities. A full-time and part-time program is also available to Inuit in Nunavut, in collaboration with the Nunavut Teacher Education Program of Nunavut Arctic College, Iqaluit, NU.

Quebec Graduates of this program receive Ministry (MEQ) certification to teach at the elementary level in Aboriginal schools.

Admission to the Certificate in Education for First Nations and Inuit

An applicant will normally be employed as a teacher or as a classroom assistant, have a valid teaching authorization from the appropriate teaching authority or a community education committee, be recommended by the school principal and an officer of the education authority, be recommended by a local community education committee, and be at least 21 years of age. Younger applicants will be considered for admission if they hold a Grade 12 High School Diploma or a Diploma of Collegial Studies. The right of final decision for acceptance of candidates rests with McGill.

Those intending to complete the programs offered in cooperation with the Kativik School Board or the Nunavut Teacher Education Program must be fluent and literate in Inuktitut/Inuinnaqtun. Fluency in Algonquin, Cree, Mi'kmaq or Mohawk is not a condition for acceptance for applicants from these communities, but is considered an asset. Courses are available in all four of these languages for those teaching in immersion classes and other teaching situations where a knowledge of the Aboriginal language is essential.

Time Limit

The time limit for completion of the 60-credit Certificate in First Nations and Inuit Education is 12 years. The University reserves the right to request that a student retake a course or courses after a 10-year period if it is felt that too long a break has occurred in the ongoing nature of the training.

5.2.2 Certificate in Aboriginal Literacy Education

This 30-credit program is designed for Algonquin, Cree, Inuit, Mi'kmaq and Mohawk people who wish to gain a deeper understanding of their Aboriginal language, especially in its written form. It is aimed mainly at those who will be teaching their Aboriginal language and is only available through partnerships with the communities concerned.

Admission to the Certificate in Aboriginal Literacy Education

Students admitted to this program will be recommended by their communities (as is presently the case with the Certificate in Education for First Nations and Inuit). If the program is used for professional development, students will be Aboriginal teachers employed in local schools. As with the Certificate in Education for First Nations and Inuit, they must be mature students, or hold a Secondary V diploma or equivalent.

This certificate may be taken concurrently and completed within the B.Ed. for Certified Teachers if the required B.Ed. profile is fulfilled. See section 5.2.5 "Bachelor of Education for Certified Teachers (Elementary Education)".

5.2.3 Certificate in Middle School Education in Aboriginal Communities

This 30-credit program focuses on developing the particular skills and abilities required of the Aboriginal teacher in the middle school of his/her community. It does not lead to provincial certification. Rather, it prepares Aboriginal teachers who are bilingual or have some knowledge of their Aboriginal language and who have already established themselves as teachers to teach students at this level in ways that are developmentally and culturally appropriate. The program focuses on the particular psychological, emotional and social needs of Aboriginal adolescents and the teacher's role in facilitating the transition between elementary and high school.

Admission to the Certificate in Middle School Education in Aboriginal Communities

Applicants will normally have completed or be completing their B.Ed. for Certified Teachers. It is strongly recommended that they have some competence in their Aboriginal language as indicated by the successful completion of at least two language courses. For those applying with degrees from other universities, additional courses may be required to match the McGill B.Ed. for Certified Teachers profile. As the program and courses will be delivered in the partnership communities, applicants must be recommended by their school boards or teaching authorities.
