The Career Switcher program is an online alternate route to licensure that will prepare you to become a middle or high school teacher in as little as a year. Designed for those looking for a career change, you'll learn how to transition to teaching, manage your classroom and develop your curriculum. You'll also explore how to assess and evaluate students under the mentorship of a seasoned instructor. Presented from a Christian worldview, through this alternative route to licensure program, you can earn initial licensure to teach in the Commonwealth of Virginia. This program is supported by award-winning professors who are available online or on campus in Virginia Beach to help you.
Regent's Career Switcher Program not only provides alternate teacher licensure for career switchers, it also provides the majority of the credits needed to obtain an M.Ed., which is the professional degree for teachers.
