Postbaccalaureate and MAT Resources

The Certification Office assists students who have previously earned a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university and now desire to obtain an initial teaching certificate.

Currently Missouri State offers over 30 different certification programs at either the Postbaccalaureate (nondegree-seeking) or Graduate level. Alternative Certification Programs approved by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) are available in several areas.

Our Visually Impaired Program (VIP) is offered through a combination of online courses and education courses completed at your local college or university.
