Undergraduate Studies in Education (USIE)
Make a difference. Change lives.
Congratulations for considering teaching as a career. You probably have questions about how long it takes to become a teacher or what major you should consider. You may want to know if you can become a teacher with only a bachelor's degree.
Undergraduate Studies in Education (USIE) is part of the College of Education and Human Development at George Mason University. USIE provides a variety of services for undergraduate students interested in the field of education. We can answer questions about how to:
- Prepare for graduate-level teacher licensure programs through required undergraduate coursework and exams;
- Attain teacher licensure with a bachelor's degree (through one of several licensure programs); or
- Register for one of our education minors.
USIE collaborates with the Graduate School of Education; the School of Recreation, Health, and Tourism; the College of Humanities and Human Sciences; the College of Science; the College of Visual and Performing Arts; and New Century College.
