Program Description The Secondary Teacher Education Program at Bishop’s University is a two step program leading to two degrees, a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or a Bachelor of Sciences (B.Sc.) with a Double Major (Education and a teaching discipline) and a Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) This combination of degrees is required in order to be eligible for a Quebec teaching permit or “brevet d’enseignement.” This degree only certifies you to teach in the province of Quebec. If you are planning to teach in another province, it is your responsibility to contact the Ministry of Education in that province to see what additional courses are required to certify you to teach in their province. All of our programs provide students with a balanced, rich, and practical education in all sub-disciplines of Chemistry (Analytical, Biochemical, Environmental, Inorganic, Organic, and Physical) and students graduating with a Chemistry degree from Bishop’s University have had an excellent record of being admitted to graduate schools and professional programs (Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Education, etc.) or in finding employment in their field. Class sizes in chemistry courses are small, which promotes close personal interaction between members of the faculty and students. The faculty are also directly involved in all undergraduate laboratories, which enhances personal contact and results in a friendly and very productive learning in experimental chemistry. The Chemistry Department has an excellent set of modern instruments, such as a 400 MHz NMR and a GC/MS, which are used by undergraduates in their laboratory courses and in research projects. This is in contrast to most universities where many instruments are reserved for graduate students. Hands-on, extensive training on this modern instrumentation and equipment greatly benefits our students and ensures that they are very well prepared for graduate studies or future employment.
