Program description

Catholic Studies for Teachers

The Catholic Studies for Teachers (CST) program gives students a solid foundation to be future leaders in Catholic education. Blending in-class and experiential learning, the program offers successful students guaranteed admission to Western Faculty of Education.

Students can choose either the Junior-Intermediate or the Intermediate-Senior streams in the BEd program, and can combine CST with another major.

In Years 2, 3, and 4 of the BA (Honors) or four-year BA program, students complete Religious Studies courses in Catholic Studies, including biblical studies, history of Christian thought and practice, prayer and sacraments, Christian ethics, and world religions. Students will also register in service learning courses in which they will be placed in Catholic schools to assist teachers in the classroom and work in other parts of the school (such as the library, special education) to get an overall view of the educational institution and its culture. Students will receive extensive orientation before their placements and will also have regular meetings with the program coordinator throughout their time in the schools.

Students who are interested in applying to the Catholic Studies for Teachers Program must apply to Arts at King’s (EKA) and indicate Catholic Studies for Teachers as the major area of interest.

Admission requirements

The admission of each candidate is determined by the Admissions Committee. In the admissions process, candidates are chosen according to academic and non-academic criteria:

  1. Completion of first-year requirements with an overall average of at least 75% on at least 5.0 courses including Religious Studies 1027E and the necessary first-year course, if required, for a declared second teachable subject; and
  2. Submission of:
    • a personal statement;
    • reference letters;
    • an experience profile.

Catholic Studies for Teachers is a limited enrollment program. Admission is dependent upon meeting both academic and non-academic requirements. More competitive academic standing may be required when demand exceeds capacity.
