Notes: A pre-professional education program is a professional preparation program consisting of courses and experiences designed to prepare you for a teaching career. In these programs students complete a pre-professional program at the undergraduate level and complete the remainder of the education coursework at the graduate level, earning a Master of Arts in Teaching. JMU's pre-professional education programs are designed to provide you with the content knowledge, skills, and behaviors that are hallmarks of teaching excellence, and to prepare you for licensure and graduate study. You must complete a formal application to be admitted to any teacher education licensure program.
