The Randolph College Educator Preparation Program is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).


Randolph College works to identify programs and courses that may contribute to licensure or certification by regulatory agencies in U.S. states and territories. The College has determined that its Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) program has been approved by the Virginia Department of Education to offer teacher licensure in the Commonwealth of Virginia in the following areas:

  • Elementary Education (preK–12)
  • Biology (6–12)
  • Chemistry (6–12)
  • Computer Science (6–12)
  • Earth Science (6-12)
  • English (6–12)
  • French (preK–12)
  • Health & Physical Education (preK–12)
  • History and Social Science (6-12)
  • Mathematics (6–12)
  • Physics (6–12)
  • Spanish (preK–12)
  • Special Education: General Curriculum (K-12)
  • Theatre Arts (preK–12)
  • Visual Arts (preK-12)
  • Add-on endorsement areas include Algebra I (6–12)

Students who complete the appropriate course of study will have met all educational requirements for licensure to teach in Virginia’s elementary or secondary schools.

With the exception of the aforementioned teaching licensure in Virginia, Randolph College has made no determination about its programs and courses fulfilling the requirements for licensure or certification in Virginia or any other U.S. state or territory. The College assists students in determining if its courses or programs meet the needs of their state’s regulatory agencies by providing a list of education licensure agencies and encouraging students to contact their state department of education to determine current licensure expectations.

Randolph College will make individual disclosures in writing to current and prospective students when a program leading to professional licensure or certification that is required for employment or marketed as such does not meet educational requirements in states where students are located, or when no determination has been made. The disclosure will include the current contact information for any applicable licensing board and will advise the student to determine whether the program meets requirements for licensure in the state where the student is located.
