Although no Virginia university offers an education major, students major in another discipline and take education courses. When they graduate, they’re prepared to meet licensure requirements in Virginia, as well as every other state in the country.
The Education Program at Hollins

Combined Undergraduate and Master of Arts in Teaching
Students can earn a bachelor’s degree and a Master of Arts in teaching (M.A.T.) in five years. Faculty will guide students every step of the way.
What You'll Learn
Love Learning, Love Teaching
I came here with the intention of majoring in psychology, but I had also always wanted to teach. I was jazzed when I found out we have an education program that offers such an option. You can pretty much pick out whatever undergraduate major you want to do.Melissa Hubbard '13
