Liberty University’s School of Education now offers a variety of ways to pursue a graduate education degree, regardless of your undergraduate experience. Our Master of Arts in Teaching is specifically geared toward individuals with no prior teaching experience who are interested in gaining initial teaching licensure in elementary education, secondary education, or special education. Along with core courses in this program, you will choose one of the three specializations for licensure, and will complete your student teaching requirement in the area in which you are seeking licensure. Those desiring to receive licensure in the State of Virginia must meet licensure criteria. The School of Education may require certain prerequisites for the Master's degree candidate coming from a non-educational undergraduate background or who needs to meet the equivalent of an academic major in a liberal arts area.
