Education (teaching licensure)

Education Department

The Hollins Education program prepares teachers who demonstrate best practices in connecting content with evidence-based pedagogical methods to nurture the academic, social, and emotional development of each student. Our teacher education preparation (TEP) program graduates are reflective practitioners who are able to elicit meaningful and measurable data to inform their instructional decision-making. The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) lists Hollins University as an approved educator preparation program. Hollins has also been awarded National TEAC accreditation by the Inquiry Brief Commission of the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) for a period of seven years from 2015 to 2022.
