1. Licensure & Baccalaureate Degree Programs
Students interested in teaching early childhood, elementary, or special education may pursue an undergraduate degree in psychology or interdisciplinary studies and meet requirements to earn full licensure to teach in the desired teaching discipline. Students who possess an undergraduate degree and desire to enter a teacher certification program to earn a teaching license may apply to the Master of Teaching Pre-K-6 program at Norfolk State University. Admission to Norfolk State University does not guarantee admission to the teacher education program.
The licensure and/or degree requirements are under constant revisions due to either, the Commonwealth of Virginia regulations, Norfolk State requirements, or regional or national accreditation standards. Advisors and the School of Education webpage will inform students of the most current information that has resulted from changes by any of the agencies. Current guidelines and regulations supersede information in the University catalog.
