Mizzou K-12 Online offers high quality, affordable online education to Missouri educators, schools and students
Welcome to the Mizzou College of Education
The College of Education will help you obtain your initial teacher certification, pursue graduate education or advance as a professional in the education field. Current students and alumni agree — the college offers an environment of learning and discovery for researchers and developing teachers.
In June, 1867, the University of Missouri's Board of Curators founded the "College of Normal Instruction," making MU the first public university in the nation to establish a college specifically for the preparation of teachers. Known today as the MU College of Education, the college continues its rich tradition of inspiring the enterprise of learning, teaching and discovery. The College of Education is under the leadership of Daniel Clay, PhD., Dean of Education and Joanne Hunt Hook Endowed Chair for Educational Renewal.
As a comprehensive, interdisciplinary college, our research strengthens the whole of education while preparing the next generation of educators, administrators, technologists, counselors, psychologists, librarians, policy analysis and more. Educational leaders and researchers tap into the college's research centers and outreach services to improve communities and schools.
The College of Education was the first college at MU to offer a complete online masters degree and today brings quality education to learners everywhere through our innovative continuing and distance education programs.
