Students in the Concurrent Education program can choose teachable subjects in the following areas: English, French, Geography, History, Math, Science and Religion (the Religion teachable elective at Nipissing will no longer be available to students entering after 2013/2014).
Choose six courses or 3.0 credits in English. Some students may wish to to complete a double major with English and Contemporary Studies. Please make an appointment with the BA BEd Academic Coordinator for more details!
Please check out the French Teaching Option worksheet on the Worksheets page!
Please be sure to contact the BA BEd Academic Coordinator before completing an exchange!
The J/I Geography teachable consists of 3.0 credits. All Geography (GG) courses count towards the teachable subject. In addition to GG courses, CT111 "Regional Landscapes in Context" and CT212 "Environmental Issues and Responses" will count towards the Geography teachable. CT111 and CT212 cannot be counted towards the GG minor.
Recommended courses for the GG teachable:
GG294, GG250 and GG231 are recommended courses because they are listed in the Honours Contemporary Studies program under Other Disciplines. These courses will count towards the GG teachable and the Honours CT requirements. CT212 also counts towards your program requirements and the Geography teachable.
To find the Geography minor requirements, please visit the Advising website, located here.
Choose six courses or 3.0 credits in History. Some students may wish to complete a double major with Contemporary Studies and History. For more information contact the BA BEd Academic Coordinator!
Courses for an intermediate Math teachable include CO243, CO244, MA121, MA122, MA222 and another senior Mathematics course.
The Junior/Intermediate Science General teachable course consists of: BI110, BI111, CH110, CH111, and two of HS202, HS204 and/or HS206.
Contemporary Studies provides a broad education focusing on significant contemporary issues, making students aware of their global scope and encouraging them to use the collected insights of various academic disciplines. While Contemporary Studies itself is not a teachable subject, many of the courses under this discipline can count towards a senior teachable called “Social Sciences”.
How-to: Primary/Junior and Junior/Intermediate students who are interested in upgrading to the Social Sciences senior teachable, must have 5.0 credits in this teachable subject area in addition to their 3.0 credits in their junior/intermediate teachable. Students must first become qualified to teach their J/I teachable (English, History, Religion, Geography or Math). To become qualified in the Senior division, students must complete the Additional Basic Qualifications (ABQ) course titled, "Education in the Senior Division", after graduation. For information regarding ABQ's, please contact Kelly Hunter, Academic Advisor for the BEd.
