|Description:||Students completing the programs in Fine Arts develop a well-rounded perspective on the world; develop critical thinking skills and creative problem solving abilities; and communication skills transferable to many environments within and beyond fine arts related fields. The degree earned is a liberal arts degree, Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), a less specialized yet more versatile diploma, unlike a Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.). Students obtain a foundation for possible careers in teaching, the practice of art, museum curatorship, arts administration or art librarianship, among others.
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.
