Dual Degree BKIN/BEd Secondary: Physical Education


The development of dual degree opportunities is intended to engage students in the study of teacher education early in their academic career with a view to:

  • Providing an opportunity to confirm interest in teaching
  • Developing a teaching context within which academic studies will take place
  • Creating a frame of reference for students to consider learning completed during academic studies in Physical Education


  • Students complete the requirements for two degrees, BKIN and BEd Secondary, over a period of 5 years
  • Students engage in teacher education earlier thereby confirming interest in and commitment to teaching
  • Students gain experience and knowledge about the context of teaching to inform their academic studies
  • Students finish both degrees with less credit requirements, as there is some reduction in total credits required for completion when compared to the traditional 4+1 post-degree option. This reduces tuition costs for students
  • Students finish earlier than the traditional 4+1 post degree option.
  • Students are eligible to apply for BC Provincial Teaching Certificate upon successful completion
  • Students have the option of terminating BEd studies during the process, but remain eligible for completion of their initial degree


  • Students apply during Term 2, Year 2
  • Both faculties must approve the application
  • A minimum 65% GPA in work to date is required – This GPA in academic studies must be maintained in order to remain active in the Dual Degree program
  • Some Summer Session study is required in Years 2-5 [Term 1 only]
  • Both faculties agree to accept as elective credits designated courses from the partner faculty.
  • Students must complete both degree programs to graduate from either, unless they terminate their BEd studies, in which case they can complete the normal BKIN degree requirements
