Why study Concurrent Education at Queen's?

The Queen's Con-Ed degree is designed to give our graduates a competitive advantage by getting them out into the market and int the workplace earlier than their peers at other institutions. We offer our students flexible choices with two program options that lead to certification in Primary-Junior (Junior Kindergarten-Grade 6) or Intermediate Senior (Grades 7-12) teaching. But they don't need to choose right away. First year in Con-ED is about exploring your options, and all our students take the same introductory courses before choosing their preferred teaching division. The courses we offer in Con-ED help you to expand your perception of education, introduce you to new ideas and methodologies and ask you to reflect critically on how you will practice as an educator. The flexibility available in your Arts and Sciences courses allow you to explore different fields of learning to take into the classroom.

Personal Statement of Experience (PSE) for Concurrent Education

Although the PSE is not a required document, we do recommend that you complete it. If you have applied to one of our Concurrent Education programs, please consider the following when you are completing your PSE: 

Personal qualities and experiences are vitally important to the successful educator. The Faculty of Education encourages Concurrent Education applicants to focus their PSE on what would make you a good teacher. When choosing one extracurricular activity or one employment opportunity you have listed, describe the impact of this experience and the greatest learning outcome for you from the perspective of what would make you a good teacher. The readers of your PSE will be looking for you to explain what you have learned from your experience that will help you as a future educator.
