Maryville College has a long and proud tradition of preparing teachers who demonstrate and promote excellence in teaching and learning. If you are considering a professional career in teaching, we offer 18 areas of licensure. Our program prepares new teachers for the demands of the 21st-century classroom through extensive field-based experiences, essential coursework in the teaching area supported by professional education courses, and project-based learning designed in partnership with local school administrators and teachers.
**If you already hold an undergraduate degree and want to teach, we offer post-baccalaureate options for all areas of licensure. Post-bac programs are individualized programs of study and are impacted by previous coursework completion. Please contact our office for more information.
The Child Development and Learning with Teacher Licensure option prepares students for the demands of teaching in the elementary grades (Kindergarten-5th). Students completing this program of study develop expertise and understanding of developmental theories, problem solving utilizing the scientific method, and other essential understandings (behavioral, psychological, socio-cultural…) related to teaching and learning. The professional education component of this program focuses on those skills and competencies critical to the success of a new teacher (lesson design, classroom management, assessment, teaching pedagogy…).
Leading a mission trip to the Jamaican Deaf School in 2015 was just one more experience Molly has had while a student at MC that is building her confidence in teaching. The others include relevant coursework, hours of classroom observation and immersion, and faculty encouragement. “Maryville College has prepared me by being so supportive about teaching with my disability,” she said. “I have a speech disorder in which I cannot talk. I didn’t think I was going to be able to teach, but the professors in the Education Department have put their faith in me. When I graduate, I want to attend a master’s program in Special Education while teaching my first job.”
We offer several areas of licensure for those interested in teaching at the high school level. Each program prepares students for the demands of teaching a specific content area. Students completing a program of study for teaching in the secondary grades 6-12 develop expertise and understanding of a specific content area. The professional education component of this program focuses on those skills and competencies critical to the success of a new teacher (lesson design, classroom management, assessment, teaching pedagogy…).
Morgan’s passion for history stems from childhood, when family vacations meant trips to historical landmarks and battlefields. She’ll be able to share that passion with young students after earning teacher certifications in history and economics. “The faculty members in both the Education Department and the History Department have really prepared me for life after graduation,” she said. “Dr. [Terry] Simpson is always so eager to recommend techniques for the integration of historical texts in the classroom. He is always happy to help all of his students because he has been a classroom teacher and is passionate about educating America’s children.”
We offer several areas of licensure for those interested in teaching special topics designed for all grade levels. Each program prepares students for the demands of teaching a specific content area. Students completing a program of study for teaching in the grades P-12/K-12 develop expertise and understanding of a specific content area. The professional education component of this program focuses on those skills and competencies critical to the success of a new teacher (lesson design, classroom management, assessment, teaching pedagogy…).

In addition to her duties in the classroom, Cheree is involved in a mentor program, represents the second grade in a student-centered school environment program and is responsible for Eaton’s monthly student news broadcast. “Maryville College has prepared me immensely for my career. The liberal arts curriculum taught me to be an educated, effective and informed teacher. I felt prepared going in as a first-year teacher because we learn expectations through firsthand experiences in the licensure program. My professors taught me to be a better teacher because they are exemplary role models of extraordinary teaching. Overall, Maryville College challenged me to achieve academic excellence,” she said. “Now I challenge my students to do the same.”
Kevin spent two years in high school classrooms before transitioning to positions that allowed him to explore his passion for classroom technologies. He earned a master’s degree in instructional technology in 2015 and is currently enrolled in a doctoral program for educational leadership and administration. “In 2004, I walked on Maryville College’s campus as a first-generation college student with the desire to teach. A decade later, I work for a Fortune 500 company that is impacting thousands of classrooms around the world,” he said. “I would not be where I am today without the wisdom and guidance of Drs. Simpson, Lucas and Orren and the entire MC teacher education program. They are still a source of inspiration to me as I attempt to, as Isaac Anderson said, ‘do good on the largest possible scale.’”
The Maryville College faculty and administration believe that the teacher education program should provide students with the skills, dispositions, and knowledge needed to be successful first-year teachers. Our coordinated efforts are dedicated to provide a teacher education program that will develop teachers who demonstrate:
