The Master of Teaching curricula are designed to incorporate eligibility for initial teaching licensure in Virginia in early and elementary, secondary education (biology, chemistry, earth science, English, history, history and social studies, mathematics, physics) or health and physical education.
The approved curricula include undergraduate qualifying courses as well. Individuals pursuing the extended program are awarded undergraduate and graduate degrees simultaneously; baccalaureate degree recipients who meet the admission criteria also may pursue the Master of Teaching degree program, including the qualifying courses. The combined baccalaureate and Master of Teaching program requires a minimum of 153/154 hours, at least 33 of which must be at the graduate level.
There are several tests that students must pass for admission to teacher preparation, admission to student teaching and licensure in Virginia. Students should consult the Student Services Center section on the School of Education website for current testing requirements.
