Education is a science, but also a gift. Education is a career, and also a cause if you want to make a difference in the lives of others. The Millsaps Department of Education equips future teachers who desire to acquire deep content area expertise through majoring in their discipline (e.g. history, English, etc.) Successful completion of a minor in education, combined with our teacher preparation coursework and student teaching partnership with William Carey University, can result in teacher licensure and open the door to immediate employment after graduation.

The streamlined and field-based program maximizes your time and potential. Whether in the classroom or a research setting, students will work closely with faculty mentors to develop the skills necessary to advance as an educational leader.

In an effort to prepare future teachers, William Carey University and Millsaps College have joined forces on a new pathway for Millsaps students to earn teacher licensure after graduation. Read more about this exciting partnership.
