After two years of Pre-Education, admission to the Faculty of Education is competitive and is based on your university grades and meeting other requirements. The required average will vary depending on your area of study.
Combined Degrees - B.A / B.Ed
Students may meet the Physical Education major requirements by completing a major in Kinesiology or the General Major in the Social Sciences (at least 7 courses in Kinesiology and 4 courses in each of two other disciplines in the Social Sciences).
