Master's + Teacher Certification


Avila offers concentration options that allow students to obtain a teacher certification AND a master's degree concurrently.  These options are for those who may be considering a career change or received a bachelor's degree in an area outside of education.  

Students experience the real classroom right from the beginning of the program.  Our teacher preparation courses provide a multitude of opportunities for candidates to work with mentors in area classrooms.   

Students who successfully complete our teacher preparation programs go on to teach in public or accredited private schools in grades K-12.  

These programs are for initial teacher certification in Missouri, with the option to easily add Kansas licensure.  

The following programs lead to initial teacher certification:

      • MAEd in Secondary Education (Alternative Certification)

          • Art (K-12) certification
          • Biology certification
          • Business certification
