In order to apply for the Concurrent BEd program, a York student will need to have successfully completed a minimum of 60 credits (if applying to the Primary/Junior or Junior/Intermediate division and pursuing a 90 credit York degree) or 90 credits (if applying to Primary/Junior, Junior/Intermediate or Intermediate/Senior division and pursuing a 120 credit York degree) and have a minimum of 30 credits remaining in their undergraduate degree. Students must have a minimum overall gpa of C+ or a 5.00 grade point average by May 2016 in their academic Faculty to be eligible for co registration in any one of the three basic programs. Students wishing to graduate with a three-year bachelor program degree from their academic Faculty are eligible to apply to the Primary/Junior or Junior/Intermediate programs only.
Our Concurrent BEd program allows you to work toward your education degree while at the same time completing most other York undergraduate degrees.
The academic bachelor degree program, normally requiring three or four years for completion, will require five or six years respectively, when taken concurrently with the bachelor of education degree program. Teacher Candidates beginning ED 1 in 2017 will be required to complete 4 semesters of course work, including the minimum 80 days of classroom teaching experience.
