Drury University’s School of Education and Child Development is one of Missouri’s longest standing accredited teacher preparation programs.
Note that DESE certification requirements mean that graduate education degrees do not result in teacher certification on their own. Post-baccalaureate teacher certification programs are offered as a standalone route to certification or to be completed concurrently with an M.Ed. degree. Contact us to discuss your options.
Drury offers seven Master in Education programs designed to help you grow in your teaching ability within your preferred area of emphasis. Many of our Master in Education programs are offered 100% online, as indicated with a * next to their name below.
Graduate certificates can be taken as standalone certificates or combined with a master’s degree to help you further specialize within your graduate education. Our certificates require 12 hours of coursework and are offered 100% online.
The elementary education program and specific secondary content areas at Drury University are approved by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). The professional education unit has been approved by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).
