Statement of Purpose

The Faculty of Education prepares students to assume leadership roles in education. Graduates are ready to begin a professional career and to broaden and deepen their professional expertise through continuing study. Through a sequence of educational experiences integrating theory and practice, the faculty and its partners in education provide opportunities for the academic and professional development of teachers, guidance personnel, and administrators at all levels in public school systems, community colleges, and other learning environments. Students acquire the knowledge, ethical standards, skills, dispositions, and flexibility needed to address current problems in education both creatively and effectively, and to think critically about professional practice. In all its work, the Faculty seeks to prepare educators who understand the past, delight in the challenges of the present, and look optimistically to the future.

Students have access to centres in the Faculty which provide teaching, research, and educational services to schools and communities. These include centres established for the study of First Nations education, early childhood education, mathematics education, second language learning, and social studies education.

Degrees in Education
The BEd degree is awarded upon successful completion of 60 credit hours of study in Education, following another Bachelor's degree. There are three program streams that may be followed:

  1. School Years Pattern (information follows)
  2. Bachelor of Education for First Nations Students
  3. Bachelor of Education in Adult Education

Please Note: In order to qualify for a level 5 New Brunswick teaching license, a minimum combined total of 168 credit hours is required between the two degrees. Students entering the school years pattern will be accepted into one of the following:

  • Program Option 1: Early Years/Elementary
  • Program Option 2: Secondary Students must apply in writing to the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies to change programs.

General Information

All students wishing to follow degree credit programs in Education must obtain permission to enrol from the Admissions Office of the University. Students pursuing the School Years Pattern will only be able to commence study in the Faculty in late August. Please refer to Section B of this calendar for more information on Admission requirements.

Those wishing to follow a graduate studies program should write to the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies.

Students who have completed some education course work within their previous Bachelor’s program, may apply for substitution credit toward the Education program. Courses taken before admission will not necessarily be accepted for degree substitution.

Graduates of the BEd program are pursuing careers in education in many jurisdictions in Canada, the United States, and in other parts of the world. Students who successfully complete the school years requirements, are eligible to apply for a New Brunswick teacher's certificate. This certificate is recognized by other Canadian Provinces and most US states. Nevertheless, students should ensure that the specific programs they are following will qualify them for teacher certification in the province, state or country where they hope to work.

Note: The Province of New Brunswick Teacher Certification Regulations under the Education Act states that only Canadian citizens or those holding landed immigrant status or a work visa are eligible for teacher certification in the Province of New Brunswick.

Prerequisites to the Program

To be admitted to courses in French second language education, students must possess a high level of French competency. Students must provide evidence of this competency through a French oral proficiency certificate with a minimum level of “Advanced” from the New Brunswick Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour.

The New Brunswick Department of Education requires that all BEd students entering schools (for practicum or individual course requirements), must provide evidence of a Criminal Record Check (including the vulnerable sector). Students are responsible, at their own expense, to provide evidence of the Criminal Record Check (including vulnerable sector) to the Faculty of Education upon acceptance into the program. Documentation outlining the need for the background check, required by law enforcement agencies in many jurisdictions, will accompany the offer of admission from the Admissions Office.

Faculty of Education Admission Advantage

A number of students will be guaranteed admission to the Faculty of Education school years program:

  1. after secondary school graduation provided they achieve a minimum graduation average of 80% and meet the teachable subject admission requirements for education within their first degree and meet progress criteria.
  2. after first year in a program at UNB provided they achieve a cumulative grade point average of 3.3, meet the teachable subject admission requirements for education within their first degree and meet progress criteria.

The Faculty of Education Admission Advantage extends conditional offers of acceptance into the Bachelor of Education program to exceptional high school and first year UNB students. Faculty of Education Admission Advantage students apply to the Bachelor of Education program and to the University of New Brunswick Fredericton during the final year of secondary school or apply to the Bachelor of Education program during the first year of their UNB program.

Secondary school students should complete these steps:

  1. Apply to an undergraduate program at UNB, by the application deadline of March 31st.
  2. Indicate interest in the Faculty of Education Admission Advantage by completing the Faculty of Education advance application at the same time.

First year UNB students should complete the Faculty of Education advance application.

The competitive application for the Faculty of Education Admission Advantage requires that the applicant presents all courses necessary for admission to their first program choice (e.g. Bachelor of Arts) with an admission average of 80% if applying out of high school or an assessment grade point average of 3.3 if applying after completing a typical first year of study (30-39 ch).

Progress Criteria

To progress into the Bachelor of Education program, Faculty of Education Admission Advantage students need to:

  1. Enrol at the University of New Brunswick for their first degree.
  2. Achieve a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 upon completion of that degree (degree must be completed within a five year period).
    Demonstrate continued involvement in leadership/achievement activities involving working with children, athletics, performing arts, student government, volunteer work, and community services.
  3. Complete final component of Faculty of Education application.

Securing Faculty of Education Admission Advantage status has the following benefits:

  1. A place in the Bachelor of Education program, conditional upon meeting progress requirements.

A place in the Faculty of Education will be assured to those students who are awarded a Faculty of Education Admission Advantage, provided they meet the progress criteria listed above upon graduation from their first UNB degree program.

Costs
In addition to those costs listed in Section C of this Calendar, students are responsible for all travel and accommodation costs related to the required practicum experiences throughout the entire BEd program.

University Regulations

Students are urged to read the General University Regulations, Section B of this Calendar, and in particular the subsection headed Grading System and Classification.
Any point not covered in the following regulations will be governed by the General University Regulations.

General Regulations

Divisions and Distinctions

  1. BEd degrees are awarded in divisions as stated in the University Regulations (Section B).
  2. A student in the BEd program having a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.8 in Faculty of Education courses, and no grade below C, and whose practicum is deemed satisfactory for this degree by the Dean of Education after consultation with the faculty members who supervised the student's practicum, shall be awarded the BEd degree with Distinction.

Repeating Courses

Per University Regulations. 

Field Experiences (Practicum)

The Faculty of Education may only place students in school settings within the New Brunswick public school system in cooperation with the New Brunswick public school system, and with the ongoing permission of a School District or School as appropriate. Such Schools and/or School Districts are not required to accept or maintain intern placements.

a. Practicum placements are evaluated on a pass/fail basis. If an intern is removed from his/her practicum by the Faculty of Education, or a School District and/or a School, or their practicum performance does not meet expectations a grade of NCR will be assigned.
b. In their field experiences students participate in teaching and learning activities in an educational setting approved by the Faculty. Responsibility for arranging student teaching placements, throughout the province of New Brunswick, rests within the Faculty of Education. Students must not attempt to arrange their own practicum school placements. The Faculty of Education will attempt to secure one practicum placement for each student.
c. Students are responsible for all travel and living expenses incurred during the practicum.
d. Students who have failed the practicum (that is, received a grade of NCR) are required to wait one academic term before applying to the Faculty of Education for an opportunity to make a further attempt at the practicum. Students, in so applying to the Field Services Committee of the Faculty of Education must establish that the factors causing the failure have changed and that there is reason to presume that a further attempt at the practicum would be successful. The request by a student to make a further attempt at the practicum must be submitted in writing and must satisfy the Dean of Education and the Field Services Committee on both of the above points. In all such cases, there is no obligation on the part of the Faculty of Education, through the Dean of Education and the Field Services Committee, to grant students a chance to make a further attempt at the practicum. In cases where the Dean of Education and the Field Services Committee deny a student a chance to make a further attempt at the practicum, the student will be required to withdraw from the Faculty of Education. Students wishing to be placed in a French Immersion classroom for their practicum must meet the minimum Oral Proficiency requirements of the School District.
f. To teach a school subject in the advanced block of the practicum in middle school or high school a student must have a minimum of 9 credit hours of methods in the subject area.
g. Any appeal with regard to receipt of a grade of NCR on the practicum must follow the University appeal policies. (See Section B, III, Item L: Review of Grades.)
h. Students who do not complete the practicum for reasons other than receiving a grade of NCR and/or being removed from a practicum by the Faculty of Education or a School District and/or a School in the New Brunswick public school system may be awarded a grade of incomplete for the practicum. In such cases, the Faculty of Education shall work with the student to attempt to arrange a subsequent placement for the student, recognizing always the limitation to practicum placements set out in this regulation.

Residency Requirement

Students in the BEd degree program must normally complete a minimum of 60ch in Education, including Field Studies, from the University of New Brunswick.

Time Limit

Bachelor of Education: the maximum time permitted between the first registration and the completion of the BEd degree in accordance with the regulations in effect at the time of first registration shall normally be 4 years.
BEd in Adult Education: the maximum time permitted between the first registration and completion of the BEd in Adult Education in accordance with the regulations in effect at the time of the first registration shall normally be 8 consecutive calendar years. 

Course Selection

Within the Bachelor of Education program, there are required courses and some elective space. Students should consult with Faculty of Education advisors when choosing electives. 

Substitution Credits

Students may obtain substitution credit of up to 12 credit hours toward the BEd for education courses which have been taken at this or another institution, where the grade received is 'C' or higher, and which meet program requirements. In these cases, alternate education courses must be successfully completed to meet program requirements. 

Re-registration

Students who have withdrawn from the Program must establish that the factors necessitating withdrawal have changed and that there is reason to assume that a further attempt would be successful. The request for re-registration must be submitted in writing and must satisfy the Dean of Education. In such cases there is no obligation on the part of the Faculty to place the student in a similar practicum.

The BEd Program

The BEd degree is awarded upon successful completion of 60 credit hours of study in Education following another Bachelor's degree.

Students elect one of two distinct patterns in the BEd program: 1) School Years Education, or 2) Adult Education. The School Years pattern consists of the following:

BEd (School Years Pattern)
