Faculty of Education Programs, Courses and University Regulations

Faculty of Education programs have professional components and field placements. In all aspects of any program, on campus and off, students are expected to demonstrate ethical, responsible, and professional behaviour in the performance of their duties, to conduct themselves in accordance with the law (e.g., Youth Protection), and to meet the expectations of schools, boards, and other host institutions receiving them for field placements. This applies to all aspects of professional conduct, including but not limited to respect for persons, property, and confidentiality, appropriate dress, and punctuality. Failure to meet these expectations, regardless of performance in courses or other formal program requirements will be taken into account in the assessment of the students' overall academic standing in the program and, in the most serious instance, may result in a requirement to withdraw from the program.

Early in their graduating year, all students should check with their adviser to make sure that they will meet all program requirements in time for graduation. It is essential that students in their final year indicate the expected date of graduation by applying for graduation on Minerva; see University Regulations and Resources > Undergraduate > : Graduation for more information. During the graduation approval process, students can query their graduation record on Minerva to verify that the Faculty has approved their graduation. When a final-year student changes the expected date of graduation, the student must notify the Internships and Student Affairs Office immediately. It is also the student's responsibility to complete the required forms for teacher certification, and to check that his/her graduation has been approved. Further information is available on the Internships and Student Affairs Office website: www.mcgill.ca/isa. Students are not permitted to take courses outside McGill University during the last term prior to graduation. Students who fail to graduate as expected and who do not re-register must apply to the Director of Internships and Student Affairs to graduate. Application to graduate must be made sufficiently in advance of the expected graduation date to allow the Faculty to verify the student's record.

Faculty of Arts, including the School of Social Work (Graduate) Programs, Courses and University Regulations

The graduate program in Art History offers M.A. and Ph.D. degrees and is extremely active. The programs cover a wide range of areas of study delimited by the Department's fields of specialization, which include the following: Ancient; Medieval; Renaissance; the 17th, 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries; Contemporary; Canadian; East Asian; Architectural History; New Media; Print Culture; Gender and Sexuality; Race and Representation; and art historical methodologies, notably Feminism, Postcolonialism, and Queer Theory. All of our faculty members are outstanding scholars in their respective fields and are involved in a wide range of major collaborative and individual research projects, many involving faculty from other universities, departments, and programs (such as Communication Studies, English and Literary Studies, Histories of Science and Medicine, Religious Studies, Classics, History, and Women’s Studies). These research projects allow us to offer relevant research training opportunities and assistantships to our graduate students. McGill is situated in one of the most vibrant cities in North America, and Montreal offers myriad opportunities for graduate students to engage with local arts institutions, either officially, through internships and research fellowships, or unofficially, through volunteering. Local institutions range from large-scale public museums (such as the Musée d'art contemporain, the Musée des beaux arts, and the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa) to smaller alternative galleries (such as feminist arts spaces La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse and Studio XX). There are also university-based venues such as the Redpath Museum on campus and the McCord Museum of Canadian History (which houses the McGill University Archives), and independent contemporary art galleries such as DHC and the Darling Foundry. The Canadian Centre for Architecture, with its archives and exhibitions, and the Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec also offer grants and research opportunities for local graduate students. A close relationship with the other three major universities in Montreal (Concordia University, Université de Montréal, and Université du Québec à Montréal) affords students access to a broad network of additional courses, lectures, and colleagues across the city.

Faculty of Science, including School of Computer Science (Graduate) Programs, Courses and University Regulations

The Environment graduate option offers students the opportunity to pursue environment-focused graduate research in the context of a range of different fields, including Anthropology, Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, Biology, Bioresource Engineering, Earth and Planetary Sciences, Entomology, Epidemiology, Experimental Medicine, Geography, Law, Microbiology, Plant Science, Parasitology, Philosophy, Renewable Resources, and Sociology. Through a program consisting of research, seminars and two courses, this option adds a layer of interdisciplinarity that challenges students to develop and defend their research and think in a broader context. Students graduating from the M.Sc. or Ph.D. program under the Environment option will therefore be able to understand and critically analyze an environmental problem from several perspectives (e.g., social, cultural, scientific, technological, ethical, economic, political, legislative) and at a local, national, regional, and/or international scale. In addition, they will be able to explore and critically assess analytic and institutional approaches for alleviating the selected environmental problem, and to effectively communicate research findings to both specialist and lay audiences. Coordinated and administered through the McGill School of Environment (MSE), the Environment option is aimed at students who wish to use interdisciplinary approaches in their graduate research on environmental issues and who wish to benefit from interactions that will occur as they interact with students from a wide range of different disciplines. This option is available for Master's and/or Ph.D. students in: Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (Bioresource Engineering, Entomology, Microbiology, Plant Science, Parasitology, Renewable Resources), Arts (Anthropology, Geography, Philosophy, Sociology), Law, Medicine (Epidemiology and Experimental Medicine), and Science (Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, Biology, Earth and Planetary Sciences, Geography).

Faculty of Arts, including the School of Social Work Programs, Courses and University Regulations

The Faculty of Arts at McGill is especially proud of its major and minor concentration programs known as the multi-track system. The multi-track system encourages flexibility, independence, and knowledge in a diversity of disciplines. It provides students with an unprecedented opportunity to tailor a unique academic profile suited to their specific interests and career ambitions. Students also have the option of doing minor concentrations in other faculties. The Bachelor of Social Work (B.S.W.), an undergraduate program of professional studies, is offered through the School of Social Work. In addition to the standard three-year B.S.W. program, the School offers a two-year program for students who already have an undergraduate degree in another discipline. The B.S.W. program is designed to provide an academic environment within which students will develop: integrated social work knowledge pertaining to its history, theoretical foundations, research base, practice modalities and policies that influence the delivery of health and social services; professional skills in the well-established methods of practice; an understanding of social policy in Canada; an awareness of the various dimensions of diversity and how they intersect in an increasingly heterogeneous society; and a sense of identity with the profession of social work.

Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, including School of Dietetics and Human Nutrition Programs, Courses and University Regulations

Plant scientists have a crucial role to play in solving several of these problems. How can we keep feeding the growing population with quality food, while the resources to do so are scarcer than ever? How will plants react to a changing climate? How can we design effective conservation strategies to preserve biodiversity? The challenge of using the knowledge accumulated in the field of biology to answer these questions falls in great part to plant scientists. The Department of Plant Science contributes to several undergraduate programs that will train tomorrow's agrologists, ecologists, botanists, and biotechnologists. These include specializations in Ecological Agriculture, Plant Biology, Plant Production, and also the Environmetrics and Food Production and Environment Domains of the McGill School of the Environment. See related program information under section 6.2: Bachelor of Science (Agricultural and Environmental Sciences) – B.Sc.(Ag.Env.Sc.).

Faculty of Medicine (Graduate) Programs, Courses and University Regulations

Faculty of Medicine (Graduate) Programs, Courses and University Regulations

The primary goal of this program is to provide students with unique opportunities to learn experimental designs and fundamental research techniques, and objectively synthesize information from scientific literature. These tools enable the students to focus on major research topics offered by the Department: molecular microbiology, mycology, microbial physiology, virology, genetics, immunology, drug design, and aspects of host-parasite relationships. Each M.Sc. student chooses their preferred major research area and research supervisor. Following an interview, the student is presented with a research topic and offered a studentship (amounts vary). Each student then must register for our graduate courses (two seminars, two reading and conference courses, and three current topics). If pertinent to the student’s research program, the research adviser may advise the student to take additional courses. Most of our students, after one year, are proficient researchers, and some first authors of a research publication. About 70% of the M.Sc. students elect to enter into our Ph.D. program. The remaining students advance their microbiology background by opting to enter into medicine, epidemiology, biotechnology, or pharmaceutical disciplines.

Prepared to Teach Online? Perspectives of Faculty in the University of North Carolina System

Prepared to Teach Online? Perspectives of Faculty in the University of North Carolina System

According to the UNC Report on Expanding Access to Higher Education Through State-Funded Distance Education Programs submitted to the Board of Governors on May 1, 2002, distance education opportunities in the UNC system have grown tremendously in recent years. Enrollment in distance education programs between fiscal years 1999 and 2001 reflects an increase of 70%. Student credit hours generated through distance education increased by 99% during the same time frame. Online degree program options increased from six offerings in the spring of 2000 to 30 in the spring of 2002. All institutions in the system have engaged in the development of online learning courses/ programs, with some developing more than others. East Carolina University was at the top of the list generating 14,000+ student credit hours, while North Carolina State University generated 13,000+ and Fayetteville State, a little over 8,000. All other institutions in the UNC system were credited with less than 8,000 student credit hours in distance education courses in fiscal year 2001.

Unbundling Faculty Roles in Online Distance Education Programs

Unbundling Faculty Roles in Online Distance Education Programs

The unbundling of faculty roles begins with determining the core faculty responsibilities associated with the institution. For example, Franklin University has identified three principle faculty functions including leadership, instruction, and curriculum quality (Hagerott & Ferezan, 2003). The unbundling of these roles allows the university to assess, manage, and utilize resources based on each of these functions. It also allows the faculty to focus on their areas of expertise. Faculty members with training in curriculum design are involved in developing courses, while those with experience delivering instruction are able to focus on facilitating the course. In a traditional faculty model the faculty is responsible for both the content and delivery along with other functions like supervising graduate students, advising students, conducting research, and serving on university committees. In an online classroom this would also entail being responsible for technology functions. Unbundling these roles separates the instructional from the delivery activities and redistributes them (see Figure 1).
