Although students choose Mizzou for a variety of reasons, most choose education for the same reason: to help all learners achieve.
Why go to Mizzou’s College of Education? It is simple: Professors at Mizzou do the research that shapes the field of education. You learn from the best when you come to MU. The student to faculty ratio is 15:1 and you’ll find that professors take an interest in your academic and professional success.
As part of an administrative reorganization within the College, all TDP courses have changed letter designation effective with the spring 2012 semester. A majority of the courses were transferred from the Teacher Development Program (TDP) to Learning, Teaching and Curriculum (LTC). For instance TDP 1100 will now be LTC 1100. The following courses were moved to other departments: Educational School and Counseling Psychology - TDP 2000 and 2005 will now be ESC_PS 2010 and 2014; Educational Leadership & Policy Analysis - TDP 4060 will now be ELPA 4060; Special Education - TDP 4020 will now be Sped 4020. The Advising and Certification Services Office has updated Programs of Study with the new course designators, and numbers where applicable. If you have any questions, please contact the Advising and Certification Services office in 101 Hill Hall or the LTC Teacher Education office in 202 Townsend Hall. Full list of course changes.
During your time as an education student in the Teacher Development Program, you have the opportunity to select from the following areas of certification:
The Advising Office will help you determine which classes you need to take each semester and when it comes time to graduate, the Career and Program Services Office will help you develop a resume and apply for jobs.
