Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Certification
Note: As of Summer 2022, this program is no longer accepting new students.
The Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Certification program provides students who have completed a bachelor's degree with the course work necessary to obtain a Missouri teaching certificate. All courses are offered through University College during afternoon and evening hours with the exception of student teaching, which requires full-time availability during the fall (elementary) or spring (middle school, secondary and K-12) semester. Required course work is taken for undergraduate credit. Certification through this program is available in the following teaching areas:
- Secondary Education (grades 9-12): biology, chemistry, earth science, English, mathematics, physics or social science
- Middle School (grades 5-9): language arts, mathematics, science or social science
- K-12: art, dance or world languages (Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Latin, Russian, Spanish)
- Elementary Education (grades 1-6)
