Shenandoah University offers master’s and certificate programs that meet Virginia Department of Education requirements for licensure. Programs are inquiry-driven, problem-oriented and focused on public education foundations through course requirements, internships and field research.
While most other universities offer a Bachelor of Arts or Science, Shenandoah’s program is a Bachelor in Education — putting the focus on the expertise being developed and the career field graduates will pursue. The degree focuses on developing content expertise and expertise in how to teach that content to others.
You’ll complete coursework necessary to earn Virginia licensure, and spend 300-500 hours gaining hands-on classroom experience.
