Library Media Program

The Education Department at UVa Wise offers students a choice of two library media programs.  The minor in library media is offered to students as a minor in education but will not include the necessary courses for a teaching endorsement.  The Library Media Teaching Endorsement Program is added to an existing major and includes all the necessary coursework for licensure in library media PK-12 in Virginia.

Students have the option for an initial teaching endorsement in library media or to add-on the library media endorsement to an existing teaching endorsement. The initial teaching endorsement in library media is only available to on campus (Wise and Abingdon locations) students.

The program requires 38 hours in library media and related courses in addition to general education and major requirements.

All students enrolled in the Library Media Program must be admitted to the Teacher Education Program (TEP).
