About Education

At Maryville College, the Division of Education offers majors in EDUCATION AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION/HEALTH FOR TEACHER LICENSURE. The Division is geared to meet the unique demands of its students and prepare them for successful careers in their respective disciplines.

Maryville College also offers 18 TEACHER LICENSURE TRACKS across grade levels (grades K-5, grades 6-12, and grades PK/K-12). While each major track is housed within the corresponding discipline of study (ex: History for Teacher Licensure is a major in the Division of Humanities), the Division of Education coordinates the teacher licensure screening process, field experiences, instruction in the Professional Education courses, and supervision of student teachers.

We encourage you to explore the various programs of the Division of Education and discover how Maryville College can help you reach your dreams.
