These degrees are accredited through the Canadian Council of Physical Education and Kinesiology Administrators. The requirement for graduation with a BPhEd (Honours) is a minimum 70 percent major average and a minimum 60 percent non-major average. The requirement for graduation with a BPhEd is a minimum 60 percent major average and a minimum 60 percent overall average. New applications to the BPhEd program are accepted in years 2 and 3. Application forms must be completed and returned to the office by May 15. This is a limited enrolment program. Admission is not guaranteed by attainment of the minimum requirements. Successful graduates of the Concurrent BPhEd (Honours)/BEd degree will receive an Honours Bachelor of Physical Education degree and a Bachelor of Education degree. The Dean of the Faculty of Education may recommend that the Ontario College of Teachers grant an Ontario Certificate of Qualification certifying them to teach Junior/Intermediate (grades 4-10) or Intermediate/Senior (grades 7-12). The BPhEd degree provides students with a broadly based understanding of the discipline through theoretical and practical courses in physical education. This program allows maximum opportunity for students to pursue various combinations of courses in teaching, coaching, programming and administration, and within their particular areas of interest (see Physical Education Subfields). This degree is accredited through the Canadian Council of Physical Education and Kinesiology Administrators.
