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, 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.

*You may be required to make up deficiencies in your teachable school subject major if the total number of required courses is not complete, although acceptable, at the point of admission to the program. These courses will be over and above the 20 mandatory Education courses.

Modern Language Education Majors in French and French/Spanish must have in their first degree a study experience similar to French 2250, Spanish 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 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.
