This opportunity for li- censure at the undergraduate le- vel modifies the former program that required students to com- plete graduate work prior to receiving their teaching li- cense." Interdisciplinary studies tea- cher candidates who select this program will be able to earn full licensure to teach special educa- tion while becoming highly qualified to teach either elemen- tary education or secondary English. The multidisciplinary course work kin the baccalau- reate degree will span the dis- ciplines of English literature, composition and linguistics; his- tory; fine and performing arts; mathematics and statistics; natu- ral sciences; social sciences; human growth and develop- ment; and educational founda- tions, technology, theories and methods. In addition, students will have opportunities for se- veral early field experiences prior to student teaching. "Many states, including Vir- ginia, struggle with teacher sup- pl and demand, particularly with regards to special educa- tion teachers," said Cheryl Ba- ker, graduate program director for special education. "Combine the fact that teacher preparation programs graduate only half the number of teachers needed to fulfill the needs of the K-12 system with research that sug- gests approximately 20 percent of new teachers will leave the profession within five years of entry, and it is no surprise that special education classrooms are sometimes filled with under- qualified teachers." Of the 132 school divisions surveyed by the state, less than 30 percent projected an ade- quate number of special educa- tors through the 2011-12 school year, Baker added, while an average of almost 40 percent anticipated a severe shortage for special education teaching and administrative positions for their school division in Virginia. "I am delighted that this new program will both help reduce the teacher shortage and help these children with special needs by providing highly qua- lified teachers," said William Graves, dean of the university's Darden College of Education. "ODU is working to meet the needs of the Commonwealth for highly qualified teachers in every child's classroom."
