Combined Degree Programs

The Combined Degree Programs (CDP) in Honours Bachelor of Science/Master of Teaching or Honours Bachelor of Arts /Master of Teaching is designed for students interested in pursuing professional teacher preparation.

Students earn a bachelor’s degree from UTM and an accredited professional Master of Teaching (MT) degree at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE). They will be recommended to the Ontario College of Teachers for an Ontario Teacher’s Certificate of Qualifications as elementary or secondary school teachers. Distinct advantages include:

  • early application to the MT program (in Year 3) and conditional admission to the MT program;
  • eligibility for certification as a teacher in Ontario; and
  • eligibility to apply for doctoral study.

This CDP permits the completion of both degrees in six years with 1.0 credit that may be counted towards both the undergraduate and graduate degrees. For more information, please visit the School of Graduate Studies Calendar.
