The College of Education creates a supportive climate to help all education majors meet the rigor of teacher education. Elementary Education students have the opportunity to participate in Tomorrow’s Teachers Learning Community which links cohort learning and living opportunities. Students also receive support in preparation for the Missouri General Education Assessment required for admission. We also provide our future educators the tools to learn to use and integrate instructional technology across our curriculum. This program of study is also available at a regional campus (Poplar Bluff, Kennett, Malden, and Sikeston). Join our EDvolution of future educators!
