Mary Baldwin’s College of Education programs go beyond preparing superior classroom teachers — which we do so well that a higher percentage of Mary Baldwin graduates earn initial teacher licensure than from any other college in Virginia.
Whether you are a professional looking to switch careers into teaching, a seasoned educator or administrator interested in sharpening skills or adding specialization, or someone who wants to put your skills to work in a non-traditional educational setting or start a career in a post secondary setting, Mary Baldwin offers a clear path to your goal. Emphasizing leadership development in all arenas, our programs are continually evolving to respond to critical needs in schools as well as in other fields.
Identified year after year as the top teacher shortage areas in Virginia, special education is one of the most sought-after endorsement areas in both undergraduate and graduate programs at Mary Baldwin.
