Bachelor of Science (BSc)/Bachelor of Education (BEd) (Secondary) Combined Degrees Program (Augustana) [Education]
The Faculties of Augustana and Education offer a degrees program that is more highly structured than the BSc followed by a BEd After Degree (a six-year route). It provides less flexibility in course choice and scheduling than taking the degrees sequentially, because it is designed to meet the minimum requirements of both degrees in five years. In addition, it must meet teacher certification requirements within this time frame.
The Bachelor of Science (BSc)/Bachelor of Education (BEd)(Secondary) Combined Degrees Program (Augustana) consists of ★102 Arts and Science plus ★48 Education credits. The program is normally completed in five years, three years at the Augustana Campus while registered in the Augustana Faculty and a final two years in the Faculty of Education.
The residence requirement for this program is specified in Residence Requirement . The ★150 in the program are made up of core and general requirements, Education requirements, a major subject, a minor subject, and options, as follows:
