WVSU | West Virginia State University
A college student who plans for a career as a teacher must pursue a curriculum in teacher education, which leads to a Bachelor Science in Education degree and meets the academic requirements for a license to teach in the public schools of West Virginia.
 
All options described in the following pages have been organized in such a way that teacher education candidates completing this National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher (NCATE) and West Virginia Board of Education approved program may seek and have granted a West Virginia teaching license.
 
If candidates desire to teach in a state other than West Virginia, the NCATE approved program completed at West Virginia State University may qualify the candidates for a comparable initial certificate in the state of their choice. To be certain, the candidates should obtain the requirements of other states by contacting the appropriate state certification agency and use this information in planning their program of studies with their advisers.
