Liberty University offers an online Master of Arts in Teaching with an emphasis in Elementary Education. The degree is specifically designed for students wishing to obtain initial teaching licensure regardless of under-graduate degree concentration.
The Master of Arts program builds on a student’s previous education by integrating math, science, natural sciences, language acquisition and reading skills for the elementary classroom.
The elementary education concentration reiterates the process of student planning, teaching mathematics, the sciences and reading and writing skills, while also focusing on the areas of classroom management, student behavior and curriculum creation. The students' previous education will serve as a foundation, and the masters level of education in teaching will serve as a refining tool in the graduates’ career opportunities. Graduates will be qualified for Virginia state approved licensure, and in addition, students should verify additional requirements for the states in which they reside. It is required that students of the Elementary Education program must complete three courses, or nine credit hours, in a face-to-face on-campus setting.
