Teacher Education

Welcome to the Department of Teacher Education!  We offer many different initial certification programs in a variety of formats including traditional undergraduate day classes as well as evening courses for working adults.  If you have already earned an undergraduate degree, the Master of Arts (MAT)  in Teaching degree is for you.  Our MAT cluster program allows you to attend classes just one night a week and earn three classes of credit.

Our program integrates research-based best practices such as co-teaching.  Our teacher candidates work with K-12 students in schools but also in summer camps and after school tutoring.  In a survey administered by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, over 82% of Lindenwood alumni in public school teaching jobs reported they were well prepared or very well prepared in their first year.

The requirements to become a certified teacher have changed drastically in the past few years.  This chart outlines the previous and new requirements for Missouri initial teacher certification.  For a list of certification requirements in other states, click here.

For specifics about our field experiences and portfolio requirements, please see the handbooks page.

We offer the following certifications at both the undergraduate and graduate (MAT) levels:

If you already hold teacher certification and are interested in our advanced certification or other programs, please see these websites:

"Teaching and Leading as an Art and a Science"
The School of Education agrees that the general outcome of the teacher education program must be teaching professionals that believe and implement teaching as a blend of “Art” and “Science” as represented by the Beauty and Mechanism of the Spellmann Clock Tower… Teaching as an art because teaching is a craft that must be learned and applied in an authentic environment. Teaching as a science because it must be influenced by research and best practice for optimal student learning to be achieved.
