A message from the dean


Dear alumni,

The VCU School of Education started the year on a high note — we are now ranked No. 3 in the nation for our online graduate programs by U.S. News & World Report. This ranking demonstrates not only the exceptional quality of our faculty, staff and students, but it also affirms the strength of support provided to distance learners.
Are you interested in continuing your education or completing coursework for professional development? Take a look at our programs or the nondegree course options, offered in person and/or online. We have extended the deadlines of many of our online programs for fall 2019 so if you want to take your next step this fall, it is not too late to apply.
