Programmes of Study

The academic programmes offered at Royal Military College Saint-Jean (RMC Saint-Jean) are at the college level and are recognized by the Ministry of Education of the Province of Quebec. These programmes prepare officer cadets for university studies at the Royal Military College of Canada (RMCC) in Kingston. Programmes are offered in both official languages.

The college programmes are normally two years long (CEGEP 1 + CEGEP 2) and are divided into four semesters. The target students are those who have obtained their Quebec High School Diploma (grade 11) or its equivalent elsewhere in Canada. Students can register for and eventually obtain a Diploma of College Studies in one of two academic programmes: Social Science or Science.

Furthermore, Quebec students who have successfully completed one year of college studies (CEGEP 1) and those from outside of Quebec who have obtained a High School Diploma (grade 12) could follow a one year university-level programme in Social Science or Science at Royal Military College Saint-Jean. These programmes are mainly comprised of courses found in the second year of the complete corresponding two-year programmes. These programmes are equivalent to first- year university studies offered at Royal Military College of Canada.

The college programmes include the following core courses:

  • four courses in Literature;
  • three courses in Philosophy;
  • two courses in Second Language; and
  • three courses in Physical Education.

Core courses are supplemented with specific required courses in each programme. Students in the Social Science stream take compulsory courses in the following disciplines:
