**Concurrent Bachelor of Computer Science (Honours)/Bachelor of Education*** ***(This program will commence Fall 2010)**
All students are required to complete the requirements of the Bachelor of Computer Science (Honours) degree program, in addition to the Education courses listed below. Computer Science will be the first teachable subject for students in this program. All students must select a second teachable subject from Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics, and take six courses in the selected subject which satisfy the major requirements for an Honours degree in the selected subject.Students are advised to seek counselling in the School of Computer Science to ensure that their selection of courses fulfills the requirements for the Bachelor of Computer Science (Honours) degree and the requirements for the second teachable subject.
*Total courses:* fifty-five.

*STANDING REQUIRED FOR CONTINUATION*
Students must maintain a cumulative G.P.A. of at least 5.0, and a G.P.A. of at least 8.0 over the courses taken in each of the two teachable areas in order to continue in the Concurrent Program.Students are expected to enroll in the Concurrent Program on a full-time basis thereby completing the Bachelor of Computer Science (Honours) portion of the program in four years and must take according to schedule the required Science and non-Science courses. Students who do not take a selection of courses that lead to the normal completion of all requirements will be required to withdraw from the Concurrent Program. Students who did not follow the regular semester sequence will be required to reapply to the Concurrent Program after an absence of more than one semester.Students will prepare a learning portfolio to document their experiences in the sequence 80-199, 80-299 and 80-399. Admission to the Professional Year (Year 5) will be based on successful attainment of a cumulative G.P.A. of at least 5.0, a G.P.A. of at least 8.0 over the courses taken in each of the two teachable areas, and successful review of the Learning Portfolio.
