The mission of Martin Methodist College’s Division of Education is the development of education professionals who are prepared to participate in professional, social, and technological change; who are committed to lifelong learning, service, and continuing professional development through inquiry and reflective practice; and who work in partnership with a range of constituents to effect change at the local level.

The Division of Education offers the bachelor’s degree in elementary education with licensure to teach grades K-5; bachelors’ degrees in secondary education majors in biology, business, English, history, and mathematics with licensure to teach grades 6-12; and a bachelor’s degree in physical education with licensure to teach grades K-12. Licensure endorsement is also offered in driver education. Because the licensure programs are professional programs, formal application must be made and approval granted for admission into each program. These requirements are described in the following pages along with the course requirements and recommended curriculum for each program.

In addition to the above licensure programs, the Division of Education also offers four non-licensure programs. One is offered in elementary education and are offered in human performance.

Students interested in a major within the Division of Education should consult the appropriate program coordinator as listed below:

  • Elementary Education-Grace A. Meier
  • Secondary Education - Grace A. Meier
  • Human Performance and Physical Education-Laura Morefield

Regulations in effect at the time the student is admitted to the appropriate program within the Division of Education shall be considered binding unless directed otherwise by the Tennessee State Department of Education. That department periodically revises the requirements governing teacher licensure in the state of Tennessee. Degree requirements leading to licensure in all Martin Methodist College (MMC) teacher education programs are subject to change from those published in the college catalog. Education students are required to seek advisement from their mentors and/or the program coordinator as early as possible in the program of study to ensure that both degree requirements and licensure requirements are met.
