of Truman education majors meet all of the state exit standards by graduation
Admission to Master of Arts in Education (MAE)
Truman prepares teachers for initial certification through a graduate program, the Masters of Arts in Education (MAE). Students initially complete a bachelor’s degree in a content field and with a strong liberal arts background. Requirements for entry into the MAE are clearly identified with our core admission requirements and the admission standards for each specialty area. The MAE accepts all qualified candidates. Students who meet these requirements should be confident they will be admitted to the graduate program.
Note that as of 2017, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education of Missouri requires that you have earned a 3.0 in your education and certification specific courses to earn Missouri teaching certificates

"I love the easiness to get to know your professors and the resources that are available for students. It is easy to see the faculty’s dedication towards the students’ success, and I especially like that we are constantly challenged to be better. It can be very stressful at times, but it teaches you a lot."
