teacher education at MBC

As an undergraduate at Mary Baldwin — whether in the College for Women or the Adult Degree Program —  you can earn your bachelor’s degree and a Virginia teacher’s license at the same time. You won’t be limited to teaching in Virginia — The Virginia Collegiate Professional Teaching License offered at MBC is recognized by many other states through reciprocity. We offer the best fully accredited teaching program around. Teacher education has been a strength of ours for a long time, and it’s our single most popular academic program.

Here’s how it works:
You need to know your subject area as well as how to teach it. So, you choose a content-area major in addition to completing the general teacher education program or the special education program. The college’s education programs integrate classroom and experiential learning, opportunities for collaborative research, civic and global engagement, personalized guidance, and leadership development.
