The Bachelor of Science Kinesiology/Bachelor of Education Combined Program is a
designated 165 credit-unit, five-year undergraduate program. This five-year program is designed for students who intend to teach Physical Education at the Secondary level. At the end of the program, graduates will receive B.Sc.(Kin) and B.Ed. degrees.

Note: Students who are currently in the College of Kinesiology (admitted in 2019-2020 or before) will still complete three years of the program in the College of Kinesiology before enrolling in the College of Education to complete the last two years of the program. Please visit the 2019-20 Course and Program Catalogue for program details.

For admission information, please visit admissions.usask.ca.

Note: All teacher candidates must complete a Criminal Record Check (CRC) with Vulnerable Sector search before they can participate in any field experience. Field experiences may occur anywhere in Saskatchewan and due to limited Saskatoon placement opportunities, a local practicum may not be possible on request.

Pre-extended practicum field experience involves exploratory, practical experience in a partner school. Teacher candidates will be expected to carry out course assignments in their assigned school, engage in volunteer in-school activities wherever possible, observe, teach small and large groups and facilitate learning activities under the guidance of collaborating teachers, faculty members, and field experience coordinators. Teacher candidates are placed with teachers holding a Saskatchewan Teaching Certificate in a school using provincial curricula and organized under the Education Act. Teacher candidates will be assigned a partner school within commuting distance of Saskatoon, and must complete pre-extended practicum field study experiences by June 30 prior to the extended practicum commencing the fall of that same year.

The extended practicum involves one term of teaching experience, approximately 16 weeks in length.

The extended practicum may be required of teacher candidates in centers not within commuting distance of Saskatoon. During the extended practicum, teacher candidates are placed with teachers holding a Saskatchewan Teaching Certificate in a school using the provincial curriculum and organized under the Education Act. In order to support province-wide enthusiasm for teacher candidates in School Division contexts as well as schools in First Nations communities, the College of Education has developed partnership opportunities in diverse locations and looks forward to the learning these opportunities provide as well as the energy and innovation our teacher candidates will extend. A limited number of special requests are considered each year related to rural or urban placements that relate to exceptional circumstances (with financial responsibilities not considered as criteria for requests). Outside of these circumstances, placement preferences related to location are not guaranteed.

Before extended practicum registration, teacher candidates must have obtained an Education Weighted Average and an External Weighted Average of 60%. In addition, teacher candidates in the Secondary option must have a minimum average of 60% in each of Teaching Areas I and II.

To be eligible for the extended practicum, teacher candidates must have completed all external courses, all Education pre-extended practicum courses and the student teaching experience by June 30 prior to the extended practicum commencement.

Specific dates are posted in the online Course Offerings.

Standard First Aid and CPR-C are required by all students.
