Nipissing University and Ryerson University have worked out a new agreement creating a clear pathway for students with a proficiency in French to earn a Bachelor of Education degree with French as a second language as a teachable subject.

It’s called the Ryerson Nipissing French as a Second Language Teaching Pathway, which will see Nipissing’s Schulich School of Education reserve 15 spots each year for graduates of Ryerson’s French Option in Arts and Contemporary Studies, the French Stream in the Bachelor of Arts in Language and Intercultural Relations, and French Minor programs. The places are held in the consecutive Bachelor of Education Junior/Intermediate and Intermediate/Senior divisions.

Dean of the Schulich School of Education, Dr. Carole Richardson says it’s important for all Canadians that they prepare future teachers who are highly skilled and competent in teaching the French language, and are also sensitive to French cultural diversity. Richardson says building on the strengths of both universities will ensure these students are uniquely prepared to meet the challenges of Ontario’s French curriculum.

Applicants must meet a specific set of requirements to qualify. The agreement will take effect in this fall and will be reviewed by both universities every five years.
