Career Opportunities in Elementary Education

A teaching license is required for many careers in the field of education. This degree leads to initial licensure in the state of Virginia. Upon successful completion of Liberty University’s Virginia state-approved Bachelor of Education program, you may apply for your teaching license in another state through reciprocity. The Bachelor of Education degree will prepare you for a teaching career through studies of child development and cognitive processes. You will also explore research-based pedagogical approaches and instructional strategies. Course work will require you to complete projects and lesson plans that focus on science content. You will then complete the degree with a semester of student teaching that will acclimate you to the role of being a teacher.
