Leading Learning

Through undergraduate, graduate, post-baccalaureate, and professional development options, MBC’s education programs provide:

  • classroom and field experience
  • opportunities for collaborative research
  • civic and global engagement
  • personalized guidance
  • leadership development

Year after year, a higher percentage of Mary Baldwin students earn teacher licensure than at any other college in Virginia. About one-third of students completing an academic program at MBC also complete teacher licensure.

MBC inspired me to be teachable, knowledgeable, and adaptable in the rapidly changing educational climate. Professors and teaching partners modeled ways to establish and build true collaborative relationships with students, parents, and other educational professionals.
