The Mathematics - Middle School Education (5-9) program from University of Missouri–St. Louis  is a hybrid program, combining the child centered philosophy of elementary certification with a content specialization more typical of secondary certification. Middle school majors earn certification in one or more content areas for grades 5-9. 

Key facts:

They may be certified to teach math, science, communication arts, or social studies. Middle school majors explore the unique challenges and rewards of teaching students aged 10-14 and gain real world experience through internships and practicums at area schools. 

Students progress through the program in small cohorts supervised by professors with extensive middle school experience. UMSL’s middle school program is highly regarded in the surrounding educational community and, due to the limited number of students choosing this major, employment prospects are good.
