Why ODU for Secondary Education Professional Studies?

As a secondary education teacher with a provisional license, you have additional coursework requirements to fulfill. ODU's certificate in Secondary Education Professional Studies can help you complete those requirements and build a strong foundation of teaching knowledge and skills.

This certificate is cohort-based and consists of four online courses that are designed to fit around your schedule as a full-time teacher. This 12-credit sequence meets most of the professional studies competency areas described by the Virginia Department of Education. (It is not a state-approved endorsement education program.)

You also can apply these credits towards a Master of Science in Education degree program at ODU.
