Dean’s Message

Dear Friends, Alumni, and Prospective Students,

Welcome to the School of Education at VIU!  With a vibrant and growing student population, students within the School of Education are poised to be leaders in their fields in the development of teaching principles and practices, curriculum delivery and development, technology, and school leadership.  VIU’s learning community is one that is truly representative of a global learning community with students from all over the world and from many different backgrounds.  This provides students with a well-rounded, productive experience both inside the classroom and on campus.

The VIU difference is one that is personal, tailored, and focused on student success.  The faculty, staff, and student body continue to contribute to a vibrant and refreshing experience within our community.  The School of Education provides training in three key areas of study including TESOL (teaching English to speakers of other languages), applied linguistics, and education.  With options including master’s degree programs and graduate certificate program options, the School of Education provides educational opportunities to suit student needs and long-term goals.

It is indeed an exciting time at VIU and an extraordinary time in the field of education and second language studies! Come experience the VIU difference.

Kevin J. Martin
Associate Dean of School of Education
