75.12 Bachelor of Science (BSc)/Bachelor of Education (BEd) (Secondary) Combined Degrees Program (Augustana)

75.12.1 General Information

    The Faculties of Augustana and Education offer a degrees program that is more highly structured than the BSc followed by a BEd After Degree (a six-year route). It provides less flexibility in course choice and scheduling than taking the degrees sequentially, because it is designed to meet the minimum requirements of both degrees in five years. In addition, it must meet teacher certification requirements within this time frame.

75.12.2 Program Requirements

    The Bachelor of Science (BSc)/Bachelor of Education (BEd)(Secondary) Combined Degrees Program (Augustana) consists of *102 Arts and Science plus *48 Education credits.
