About the CCPS Secondary Education Program

The College of Continuing Professional Studies offers a bachelors of science in secondary education that leads to a teacher certification in secondary education.

The professional preparation of teachers at Drury University is grounded not only in the academic disciplines, but also in a partnership with the public schools. As part of the professional preparation of teachers, students participate in a series of clinical experiences which may begin as early as the freshman year and conclude in the senior year. Clinical experiences include teacher aiding in a public school, field experiences related to areas of specialization, reading practica, and student teaching. These experiences provide opportunities for Drury University students to gain practical experiences working with special needs children as well as a wide variety of socioeconomic, cultural and ethnic groups.

The Drury University continuing studies program to prepare secondary teachers is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, and Council for the Accreditation of of Educator Preparation (CAEP). It is the policy of the Drury University teacher certification program to accept transfer credit in professional education which are awarded only by institutions accredited by CAEP, or education programs approved for teacher certification/by state departments of elementary and secondary education.
