Education

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.

CAEP Accreditation


CAEP Annual Reporting

The Millsaps College Teacher Preparation Program was closed in May 2018 and is currently available only to Millsaps students who will complete all requirements by May 2022. Millsaps students graduating after May 2022 may pursue teacher licensure through our partnership with William Carey University. For more information contact the Millsaps Director of Programs in Education.

Millsaps College’s teacher preparation program is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) through December 2023 and includes the following initial licensure programs under review:

  • Elementary Education
  • Secondary Education with licensure in Art, Biology, Business, Chemistry, English, Latin, Math, Music, Social Studies, or Spanish.

CAEP has identified eight (8) annual outcome and impact measures and requires EPPs to provide data that can be shared widely. These measures include the following.

 

Measure 1: Completer Impact on P-12 Student Learning and Development (Component 4.1)

Millsaps participated in the statewide development of an assessment of candidate impact on student learning.  However, the development of this assessment was not completed until spring of 2019 at which time our program had been terminated.  Due to staff reductions, we are unable to collect data for this measure.

 

Measure 2: Completer Effectiveness (Component 4.2)

The Teacher Intern Assessment Instrument is a statewide performance-based assessment rubric completed by mentor teachers and supervising faculty for each student teacher.
