All education programs are designed to prepare graduates to enter the job market as beginning professionals in their respective disciplines. A master’s degree in Education from Marymount University will give you the tools, resources, and skills to be an outstanding teaching professional in a variety of learning environments. Whether you’re destined to be a classroom instructor or district administrator, our master’s degrees and certificate programs prepare graduate students for rewarding careers in education and beyond.

In order to become a teacher, the Commonwealth of Virginia expects you to become an expert in the subject matter you will be teaching. Therefore, you need to choose a major for the discipline or population you’d like to teach, then supplement that coursework with classes to earn teaching licensure.
Marymount’s teacher preparation programs are accredited by the Virginia Department of Education: Division of Teacher Education and Certification of the Virginia Department of Education and the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).
