Undergraduate programs leading to the Bachelor of Science degree require a minimum of 120 semester hours of credit. These programs lead to the Virginia Collegiate Professional Teacher Certificate or to a specific educational career. Students seeking teacher certification must earn degrees in academic areas and complete the 18-24 semester hour professional education sequence and a 12-semester hour student teaching experience in the School of Education. The licensure and degree requirements for all programs offered by the School of Education may be revised due to the Virginia Department of Education’s regulations, Norfolk State University requirements, or regional and national accreditation standards. Department heads and faculty advisors will inform students of the most current information.
