Option 1

Millsaps-William Carey Partnership Program: Earn teacher licensure upon graduation in Grades 4-6 or 7-12

This program allows you to earn a Class A teaching license in secondary education (grades 7-12) or upper elementary education (grades 4-6). Students in this program earn the first 18 credit hours toward a Master’s in Teaching from William Carey University. Students who complete a master’s program are eligible for a Class AA teaching license, which qualifies teachers for a higher rate of pay in most school districts.

Option 2

The Rhodes College Masters in Urban Education

This program offers licensure in elementary and secondary education and is a great option for those who cannot clear their senior year or who want to teach grades K-3. A substantial scholarship is offered to all admitted students. Millsaps students with a 3.0 GPA receive automatic admission to this program. Dr. DeZutter is available to help you with the application process.
