About

All students pursuing a secondary education endorsement within the Teaching (Concentration in Earth Science Education) program at Virginia Commonwealth University will student teach in the spring semester. To do so, students must take and pass the Virginia Communication and Literacy Assessment and their subject-specific Praxis II exams before the fall semester of the academic year.

Overview

Program goal

The approved curricula include undergraduate qualifying courses as well. Individuals pursuing the extended program are awarded undergraduate and graduate degrees simultaneously; baccalaureate degree recipients who meet the admission criteria also may pursue the Teaching (Concentration in Earth Science Education) program at Virginia Commonwealth University, including the qualifying courses.
