French education students are considered specialists if they have completed a minimum of 18 or 30 credits in French at the undergraduate level and complete the sequence of French education courses offered in the B.Ed. program.
All elementary and secondary French education students learn in the same classes. Students work in small groups that focus on the elementary, junior or senior high levels, and they all participate in whole-class discussions about topics and issues common to all levels. At the end of the program, they are familiar with the progression in both core French and French immersion and with most grade levels. This broad base of knowledge is an advantage because often graduates who have prepared themselves for one level of teaching find themselves teaching at another level.
