Dual Degree Program Option in Kinesiology and Education

The Dual Degree Program Option in Kinesiology and Education offers qualified students the opportunity to earn a B.Kin. and B.Ed. in Secondary Education (Physical Education Specialization) in five Winter Sessions with some academic requirements to be completed in the summer. After meeting all of the requirements, students are normally eligible for a British Columbia Professional Teaching Certificate.


Admission to the Dual Degree Program requires application to the Kinesiology Advising Office by January 31 of second year with approval by April in order to undertake a teaching practicum in the summer of Year 2.

Application for admission can be found online at the School of Kinesiology website or at the Kinesiology Undergraduate Advising Office. Students apply in January of second year and must receive approval from the School of Kinesiology and the Faculty of Education. All students whose applications are successful will be admitted to the Faculty of Education beginning in summer of Year 2.

Continuation will require successful completion of both year two of the Kinesiology major and the in-school practicum in the summer of Year 2.

Admission at any time is conditional; maintenance of good academic standing and an average of at least 68% in each Session are required throughout. In addition, students must participate in volunteer or work experience with youth aged 13-18 to meet the requirements of the Bachelor of Education program. Students must satisfy all of the degree and specialization requirements for both the Bachelor of Kinesiology and the Bachelor of Education Secondary program. Some individual courses may be considered to satisfy requirements for both degrees.

Students must communicate with an advisor in the Kinesiology program and the Teacher Education Office annually after admission to the program to discuss their progress.
