- Option 2 - Teacher Certification Program (72-78 credits):This option helps students who already have a Bachelor's degree but do not have a full-time teaching contract from a Missouri public school or an accredited nonpublic school become eligible for certification
- Option 3 - Alternative Teacher Certification Program (32-39 credits):This option is designed for students who want to earn their Missouri teaching certificate and already have both a Bachelor's degree and a full-time teaching contract from a Missouri public school or an accredited nonpublic school
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, K-12 teaching careers are expected to grow 13% through 2018.
