Teacher prep program ranked among nation’s best

Missouri University of Science and Technology’s teacher certification program is ranked among the best in the nation and in the state of Missouri, according to a national report released Tuesday, June 17.

Missouri S&T’s teacher prep program in chemistry was ranked No. 87 nationally among secondary education programs by the report from the National Council on Teacher Quality. The NCTQ report ranked Missouri S&T second among Missouri universities for secondary education programs.

The 2014 NCTQ Teacher Prep Rankings, published by U.S. News & World Report, “outline which bachelor’s and master’s education programs are building the best teachers,” U.S. News says.

Missouri S&T’s teacher education program offers teacher certification at the bachelor’s degree level for applied mathematics, biological sciences, chemistry, economics, English, history, physics and psychology. Through this program, students may earn a bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degree in any of those fields while gaining secondary teaching certification (grades 9-12) in Missouri.

Beginning this fall, Missouri S&T will also offer teacher certification for math and science teachers from kindergarten through 6th grade. The STEM-focused elementary education certification program is endorsed by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and will be fully accredited.
