Notes

  • The BFA Specialization in Art Education – Visual Arts leads to teacher certification by the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur (MEES).
  • To be recommended to the Quebec Teachers Certification Service for a Quebec permanent teaching diploma, students must satisfy the English language proficiency requirements of the program.
  • Students are responsible for fulfilling their particular degree requirements; hence, the sequences above must be read in conjunction with Section 81.20 Degree Requirements.

Academic Standing

To remain in good academic standing in the specialization and be recommended for the Quebec Art Specialist teaching permit, students must:

1. Achieve at least a “B” grade in the practicum courses ARTE 420 , ARTE 423 , and ARTE 425 .

a. Students who fail any of the above courses are required to withdraw from the specialization program.

b. Students who obtain a passing grade in any of the above courses that is below a “B” will be placed on conditional standing within the program and will be so informed in writing. These students will be allowed to repeat the practicum only once in order to achieve the required grade. Students who do not achieve the required grade in the repeated course will be required to withdraw from the specialization program.

2. Maintain an overall grade average of “B-” or higher in courses of the third and fourth years. Students who do not maintain the minimum grade average during that time will be required to withdraw from the specialization program. ARTE 423 is evaluated on a pass/fail basis and therefore is not included in the calculation of the grade point average.
