Bachelor of Education


  • Two degrees at the same time: Bachelor’s in Arts and a Bachelor of Education.
  • 5 years plus one term, with education courses and experiences in educational settings completed in years 1-2 with an in-school placement in year 3. Students complete an additional summer term in year 5 (ending in August). Queen's graduates are out into the job market one year early.
  • For both Primary-Junior (JK-Grade 6) and Intermediate-Senior (Grades 7-12) (decided by students at the end of year 1).
  • Students will choose a concentration in Year 5, such as Teaching At-Risk Children or Adolescents, International Education, Exceptional Learners, Arts in Education, Drama in Society, Assessment and Evaluation, etc. Students may instead choose to apply to a Program Track. The Program Tracks are Aboriginal Teacher Education, Artist in Community Education, and Outdoor Experiential Education.

Bachelor of Arts (Honours) - English

When students study English at Queen’s, they will learn to read perceptively, analyze clearly, and above all, communicate effectively. Students will explore the literary canon, including writers such as Shakespeare, Austen, and Brontë, but will also engage with current text forms, such as graphic novels and works by contemporary writers. Queen’s English encourages an eclectic approach to the subject, combining attention to methodology and core knowledge with the flexibility to support individual passions.

The Department of English Language and Literature is one of the oldest departments of literature in Canada, dating back to 1888. The English curriculum is structured to ensure that in each year of the program students will be in one class small enough to let them feel comfortable making their voice heard and where they won't get lost in the crowd.

The first-year lecture is supported with tutorials to help ease the transition from high school to university level writing and analysis; the second-year seminars allow students to study in-depth a single major work or cluster of related works. The Creative Writing Program, led by nationally recognized writer/mentors Carolyn Smart and Armand Ruffo, offer workshops and collaborative response to students' own work to help them hone their craft. This intensive classroom experience is enhanced by the Writer-in-Residence program which allows all creative writers, not just those in creative writing courses, to consult with a professional writer who offers advice and mentorship to the students.
