Marymount’s teacher preparation programs are accredited by the Division of Teacher Education and Certification of the Virginia Department of Education and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
All courses are taught by full-time or adjunct faculty who have taught in the field or discipline and have a terminal degree such as a Ph.D. or Ed.D. Classes are collegial, with 25 students or fewer, which leads to meaningful engagement between students and faculty.
All programs are offered on the Main Campus in a self-paced traditional format. The Elementary and Secondary Education programs are also offered through a part-time weekend cohort at Marymount’s Reston Center. Classes in the traditional format program are scheduled in late afternoon and evening. Most students complete the Main Campus program in two to three years.
