French Immersion Specialization

BC schools districts are actively seeking French Immersion teachers. The Professional Specialization Certificate in Teacher French Immersion has been designed to prepare teachers for one of the many French Immersion positions available in the province. It provides the unique skills, methodological knowledge and French language fluency to be a highly effective teacher in the French Immersion environment. 

With approval, the Professional Specialization Certificate in Teaching French Immersion may be taken concurrently with the BEd Elementary Curriculum or Secondary Curriculum programs. 

The certificate consists of four courses: two offered online in the winter session and two offered face-to-face in the summer session (normally in July). If admitted to the PSC,  students may begin taking courses in the summer session following year two. The final course must be taken in the fall term of year four. Refer to Continuing Studies’ web site for more details about admission to the certificate program. 

Students must meet with a  teacher educagtion adviser before applying to the PSC.
