Earn your teaching arts degree

As government and public officials have challenged our public school systems to rise up, educational leaders have been challenged along with them. This means that educational leadership training for the 21st century must reflect the educational reform that has placed greater emphasis on teaching and learning. Mississippi College's School of Education has accepted that challenge.

To provide the exceptional leadership required in schools, Mississippi College offers a variety of M.Ed. programs, including the Master of Education in Teaching Arts. Many graduates go beyond teaching to pursue careers in technology, assessment, diversity, law and public policy and collaboration.
