The Salem School of Education is nationally accredited and offers a Bachelor of Science in Education (BSED) degree program with teaching specializations in English Education (5th grade to adult), and Physical Education (Pre-Kindergarten to Adult). These programs lead to licensure and have been approved by the West Virginia State Board of Education.


The Salem School of Education also offers these same programs in a Bachelor of Science in Education (BSED) non-licensure degree program for those students who do not intend to teach in the State of West Virginia at this time. The BSED non-licensure program provides all the courses for teaching, but does not include the state required field experience and residency courses. Students will take alternative courses. Students who follow this path can apply for licensure in other states as well as West Virginia under each state’s alternative licensure program in the event
they choose to teach.
