Teacher Education - Consecutive
Brock University's initial teacher education program offers beginning teachers comprehensive instruction and practice teaching leading to a Bachelor of Education (BEd) degree and an Ontario Certificate of Qualification and Registration. Teacher candidates can choose to pursue a variety of teacher education program options, such as Dramatic Arts as a teachable subject, following completion of their undergraduate degree. See Teacher Education - Consecutive for more information.

Teacher Education - Concurrent
The Concurrent Education Program offers students who are beginning their university studies, and wish to pursue a career in teaching, an opportunity to complete the Teacher Education Bachelor of Education (BEd) degree program (leading to an Ontario Certificate of Qualification and Registration - OQR) while earning their undergraduate degree. Teacher candidates develop teaching-related skills, knowledge and experiences throughout their five year program. This is called the Concurrent BA (Honours/BEd):

Concurrent BA (Honours/BEd)
The Department of Dramatic Arts and the Faculty of Education co-operate in offering two Concurrent BA (Honours)/BEd programs. The Dramatic Arts BA (Honours)/BEd program combines the BA Honours program or the BA Integrated Studies Honours program with the teacher education programs for students interested in teaching at the Intermediate/Senior level (grades 7-12) and at the Junior/Intermediate level (grades 4-10.) Refer to the Education-Concurrent BA (Honours)/BEd (Intermediate/Senior) or Education-Concurrent BA Integrated Studies (Honours)/BEd (Junior/Intermediate) program listings for further information.
