MAE: Students with Undergraduate Degree from Another Institution

We welcome students who have earned non-teaching undergraduate degrees from other institutions and who want to teach in their specialty area. If you are considering applying to our Master of Arts in Education (MAE) program and currently have an undergraduate degree (that is not in teaching) from another institution, you need to set an appointment with our certification officer.

For that meeting, you’ll need to bring or send a copy of your transcript, so that together you and the analyst can create an individualized plan of study to meet the initial certification requirements.  To set that appointment, please contact:

I am thankful to have attended Truman State University, whose marvelous faculty and diligent students constantly inspired me to do my best…the strong connections I built while at Truman still influence and shape my life, making that the true reward of my Truman education.
