BAA vs BA ? - Sheridan and Guelph Humber

A photo of KateA47 KateA47
I want to go to University, but I like having options. I live in Oakville, and Sheridan College has a 4 year ECL (early childhood leadership) program, that gives you a bachelor of applied arts. I want to be a teacher, and I know to go to teachers college you need a degree, so is there a difference between a BAA and BA?

Also, I know teachers college is competitive,so will it be hard for me to be considered if I end up going to college instead of university?

And I was recently searching up the Guelph/Humber ECE program, does anyone know any details on it?

Your best bet is to ask the schools directly if they care what you have. As for the Guelph-Humber ECE program, I don't know much about it.

The thing is, with the Guelph-Humber Early Childhood Program, you're not getting a straight BA. You're going to get a Bachelor of Applied Science BASc which is from the University of Guelph. The ECE Diploma comes from Humber College. Hence the University of Guelph-Humber.

The thing with the Sheridan ECL program is that its new and not really recognized. Is it applicable to teacher's college? Absolutely.

In general, I have been told that unless you ABSOLUTELY have to go to college, go to university. In my own experience, I have applied to both.

The thing is that once you get the opportunity to apply to teachers college, this is where you need the post-secondary degree...regardless of 3+ years of college or a university degree. It's really up to the teachers colleges you're considering because they are competitive.

Best of luck!
