Master of Arts in Education Program: Information for Undergraduate Transfer Students

If you plan to pursue a Master of Arts in Education at Truman, there are several courses at the undergraduate level that meet state certification requirements for teachers so it is important to meet with our Certification Analyst, Shelia Berkowitz, as soon as possible to ascertain which courses you will need to complete at the undergraduate level.

In addition, there are required field experiences in the undergraduate program so it would be helpful for you to meet with our Director of Field Experiences, Jeanne Harding.

The chair of the Department of Education, Dr. Wendy Miner, is also available to help with any of your questions or concerns.

The hands-on approach to teaching is one of the best aspects in the Education Department at Truman. Thanks to my Education classes, I got the opportunity to know the rewarding feeling of teaching and working with students.
