Graduate

Graduate studies in the School of Teacher Education and Leadership are designed to prepare graduate students for administrative, supervisory, and related instructional and non-instructional positions in Virginia’s educational system.

Each major or program of study requires a series of courses unique to that discipline. Careful selection of electives and supporting courses permits a graduate student to develop an individualized program of study with an emphasis on one or more of the following areas:

  • Results-oriented teaching skills (pre-school through adult education)
  • Preparation for various professional areas within education
  • Additional endorsement for teachers already licensed
  • Preparation for doctoral studies.
