This is the preliminary (or launch) version of the 2024-2025 VCU Bulletin. We may add courses that expose our students to cutting-edge content and transformative learning. We may also add content to the general education program that focuses on racial literacy and a racial literacy graduation requirement, and may receive notification of additional program approvals after the launch. The final edition and full PDF version will include these updates and will be available in August prior to the beginning of the fall semester.

The School of Education, in cooperation with the College of Humanities and Sciences, offers extended teacher preparation programs in secondary education (grade six through grade 12) and early childhood and elementary education (prekindergarten through grade six). The successful completion of these programs results in the simultaneous awarding of both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree.

The Extended Teacher Preparation program is intended only for undergraduate students who are seeking to apply to the Master of Teaching program.

Further details of the Extended Teacher Preparation program can be found in the Graduate Bulletin. Students interested in the program should speak with their adviser for more information.

For the traditional, four-year pathway in early childhood education, elementary education, health and physical education, engineering education, and special education students should review undergraduate admissions information for the Bachelor of Science in Education program.
