While this graduate program does not lead to an initial teaching certification, it does offer an advanced Missouri teaching certificate as a Reading Specialist (K – 12) or Math Specialist (1 – 6). The Math/Science and Early Childhood emphasis areas include electives that offer flexibility in tailoring a program to meet graduate students’ interests. The graduate program in Elementary Education has 33 credit hours of online course work, making the program convenient for busy classroom teachers.
