Virginia Masters in Education

Virginia students have some of the best reading and writing scores in the nation, as well as one of the highest percentages of adults who’ve received their master’s degrees. Advancing your own education, therefore, will be critical to finding the right job as a teacher in Virginia.

Despite their educational accomplishments, the state reports teacher shortages in many areas. Teachers are especially needed at the elementary and middle-school levels, but also for high-school science and math, among other areas. A master’s education will immerse you in the latest educational best practices and content knowledge, so that you’re ready to give Virginia students the education they need.
