If you do not have a PreK-12 teaching license from any state when you enter the program, you will not be able to earn any teaching certification through the Missouri Western Graduate Programs.
If you do already hold a PreK-12 teaching license from any state, you can choose to take the series of Missouri Western classes required by the State of Missouri to earn the additional K-12 certification to teach English language learners (ELL).
All of the Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) content area classes, required for the Missouri Western TESOL Graduate Certificate and/or M.A.S. degree, do count toward MO K-12 ELL certification.
The State of Missouri does not offer a teaching certificate specific to the area of autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Therefore, completion of the series of classes required for the Missouri Western ASD Graduate Certification and/or M.A.S. degree does not result in additional Missouri teaching certification.
