  • Many courses require clinical experience in public school during normal school hours. Schedule open time accordingly.
  • Students should monitor their program of study carefully due to ongoing curricular changes.
  • All coursework in Teaching Specialization and Professional Education Core must be completed with a grade of C or better.
  • West Virginia law mandates that all persons entering a school or having contact with students must have completed a background check and have not been found on the sexual offender registry prior to entering a school. Each county and school can also use the results of that background check as a basis for admitting or denying admittance. It is the procedure of the Marshall University College of Education and Professional Development that every student will obtain a background check prior to being placed in a school setting.

Four Year Plan

The College of Education and Professional Development has the distinction of being the oldest part of Marshall University. The CIF (Curriculum, Instruction, & Foundations) program includes elementary, secondary, educational foundations, and educational computing for pre-service teachers. The secondary programs are designed for those wanting to teach content to middle school and/or high school students. The educational foundations and computing courses are designed for those entering the education field. Students receive broad content knowledge in the core academic area of choice as well as in the art and science of teaching children.
