All teacher education majors except some middle school students are required to double major in a subject area. This requirement ensures that students have a firm grounding in the liberal arts and sciences; widens their prospects for employment upon graduation; and enables them to return for graduate study in their second major field if they so desire. Middle school and secondary teacher education students will double major in the subject area they expect to teach. The State of Missouri requires specific content in those majors; please consult an education advisor for more specific information.
