How do I know whether courses from my secondary school transcript will satisfy the P/J subject area requirements for Canadian history or Canadian geography in regards to the Pre-Service Teacher Education program?
We require a minimum 50% Canadian content in courses used to satisfy the Canadian history and Canadian geography requirement. In cases where the amount of Canadian content is not obvious, it is the applicant’s responsibility to provide course information verifying this. Any course information must be submitted with the Experience Profile. Course descriptions submitted after the December 1, 2006 application deadline will not be considered.
Examples of courses that will satisfy the Canadian history requirement are: Families in Canadian Society (NFO OAC or HHS 4M), Challenge and Change (HSC 4A), Man in Society (NSO 4A), Law (BLW OAC or CLN 4U), Canadian Family in Perspective (NFP OAC), Canada in a NA Perspective (HCN OAC), History - Canada, United States (NCU OAC), Canada: History, Identity and Culture (CHI 4U) and Canadian and World Politics (CPW 4U0).
Examples of courses that will satisfy the Canadian geography requirement are: Urban Studies (GUR 4A), Canada - Environment and Economy (GCE OAC), Geography - Regional (GRE 4A) and Canadian Geographic Realities (GCR OAC) and Canadian And World Issues: A Geographic Analysis (CGU 4U). OAC World Issues will NOT be accepted unless a course syllabus is provided (attached to the Experience Profile) indicating at least 50% Canadian content.
All applicants, including those from other Canadian provinces and those with international documents, are expected to provide evidence of the four P/J subject areas. In all cases where course content is not reflected in the course name/title, applicants must submit course descriptions, or official letters from the school where the course was taken, indicating that the course does meet the 50% Canadian content requirement. Course descriptions submitted after the December 1, 2006 application deadline will not be considered.
