No need to look elsewhere! Offered jointly by the Faculty of Education and the Faculty of Arts, through the Official Languages and Bilingualism Institute, these multidisciplinary undergraduate programs are the only ones of their kind in Canada. Courses cover the theories of language acquisition, as well as second language learning and teaching and explore the interrelationships between language, culture and society. What's more, upon graduation, if you want to work as a second language teacher and you meet the admission requirements of the Faculty of Education, a limited number of places are reserved for you in our Teacher Education (BEd) program. Several graduate program options are also available.
This program is offered in English and in French.
The table below includes only the discipline-specific courses. Please refer to the Academic Regulations for information on the Honours bachelor's with double major and the Honours bachelor's with major and minor.
Admission requirement: a French proficiency test is required. Important: Once you submit your application, the Admissions Office will send you the information and the link for the test. Test results are an essential part of the admission process. Students will receive an offer of admission only when the test has been completed.
The French immersion stream is available when taken as part of an honours degree.
Requirements for this program have been modified. Please consult the 2018-2019 calendars for the previous requirements.
Students admitted in second language teaching will be given priority in registration for second language teaching (DLS) courses.
