The Education program at Morningside College offers three majors.

  1. Elementary Education leads to a Bachelor of Science degree and requires an additional concentration in an endorsement area for licensure.
  2. Secondary Teaching leads to a teaching license for grades 5-12 and requires a major in a secondary field such as agriculture, art, biology, chemistry, English, history/government, mathematics, music, physics or Spanish.
  3. The Special Education dual major leads to the Instructional Strategist I endorsement in Iowa. You can combine a major in mild/moderate special education with a major in elementary education or a secondary teaching field.
