For Students Interested in Secondary or K-12 Education
Several of UVA's teacher education programs require content studies courses in the area of endorsement. These content studies requirements are established by the Virginia Department of Education, and specific coursework is approved by the Curry School of Education. Students are expected to complete this coursework during the undergraduate program so that all requirements are satisfied prior to starting the Post-Graduate Master of Teaching (PGMT) program.
You can track your requirements in SIS by signing up for a content studies group:
- English (grades 6-12)
- English as a Second Language (prek-12)
- Foreign Language (prek-12; French, German, Latin, or Spanish)
- Mathematics (grades 6-12)
- History and Social Science (grades 6-12)
- Science - Biology (grades 6-12)
- Science - Chemistry (grades 6-12)
- Science - Physics (grades 6-12)
- Science - Earth Science (grades 6-12)

NOTE: You will not be notified when your form has been received. It will be processed within 5-7 days of submission. You can check your Academic Requirements form in SIS to confirm that it has been processed. If your form has not been processed after 7 days, please email email@example.com.
These groups are pre-populated with coursework approved by the Curry School of Education. You may find other courses that you believe meet the requirements. If that is the case, you should contact the relevant program coordinator to request a review of your chosen courses.

General questions about admissions should be directed to the Director of Teacher Education, Jillian McGraw.
Tracking your requirements in SIS does not equate to having a teacher education major, a College major or signal admission to the Master of Teaching program. It is simply a tool to help prospective teachers understand the content studies requirements for each program.
