Master in Education Programs

Drury University > Graduate Studies > Master in Education Programs

Drury University’s School of Education and Child Development is one of Missouri’s longest standing accredited teacher preparation programs.

  • No GRE
  • Transfer in credit : You may be eligible to transfer up to nine credit hours of graduate credit to apply to your degree.
  • Online and seated options: All programs are offered in a mix of online, blended, and seated courses. Many programs can be completed fully online (a few degrees require field experience that can be completed where you live). Seated courses are offered in the evening, starting after 5:20 p.m.

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.
