Program Length

In September 2015, the Schulich School of Education is proud to launch the two-year enhanced Bachelor of Education degree program.

About our Program

Nipissing University's Bachelor of Education (BEd) program was one of the first pre-service teacher education programs to be fully accredited by the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT).

The Bachelor of Education (BEd) program is part of our Schulich School of Education and meets the requirements of the Ontario College of Teachers for teacher certification (Certificate of Qualification). It is open to applicants presenting proof of graduation with an approved undergraduate degree from an accredited university. The program provided by the Schulich School of Education is rigorous and demands a high degree of commitment. To be successful, a student must display sensitivity to pupils, a sense of responsibility to the teaching profession, and a respect for knowledge.

Divisions Offered

Candidates may apply to enrol in one of three divisions in the program:

P/J -- Primary/Junior (Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6)
J/I -- Junior/Intermediate (Grades 4 to 10)
I/S -- Intermediate/Senior (Grades 7 to 12)

Upon successful completion of the two-year professional program, students will receive a Bachelor of Education (BEd) degree. A 70% overall average is required for graduation, with a minimum of 60% in each course and successful completion of the Practicum courses. The program also meets the requirements of the Ontario College of Teachers for the Certificate of Qualification.
