Educational Studies: Elementary Licensure
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Middlebury College in Middlebury, VT
How have great teachers influenced us? What does it mean to be deprived of an education? Education—learning and teaching—touches nearly every aspect of life and the Education Studies program reflects that. We expect our students to engage in intellectual risk taking, critical inquiry, experiential learning, creative problem solving, and reflection as they consider the theory, research and practice of education. Education Studies offers courses and practical classroom experiences that allow our students to explore the profound ways that education and teaching affect children’s lives. Our students confront issues of what and how to teach in this rapidly changing world, but they also grapple with issues of equity, social justice, poverty, race and ethnicity as they work directly with K – 12 youth locally and globally. Our minors find their vocations as classroom teachers, administrators, school psychologists, researchers, and professors. Education Studies minors can seek initial licensure as classroom teachers through our program by electing to participate in the Student Teaching Professional Semester.

You’ll understand the challenges and rewards of working with children and will be ready to dive into a teaching career.

 Green Mountain College students spend 600 hours student teaching, with one faculty supervisor for every five student teachers. Last year, all education program graduates passed the Vermont Licensure Portfolio and 100 percent passed applicable Praxis I and II examinations. Our programs are accredited by the State of Vermont, and Vermont licenses are automatically transferable to 40 other states through reciprocity agreements. Details on reciprocity may be found here. Also see http://education.vermont.gov/ for more information on Vermont’s licensing standards.
