The Education Department has a two-fold mission:
We offer teacher certification programs for the state of Missouri for students with or without a bachelor’s degree. Columbia College offers the teacher certification programs through the main campus in Columbia, Mo., as well as through two Nationwide Campuses: Lake Ozark and Rolla, Mo. The MAT and M.Ed. degrees are available through the Columbia, Mo., and Online Campuses.
Have a degree in art, biology, business, chemistry, language, social studies or math and have a job opportunity prior to certification?
